Swansea, ‘the city next to the sea’, has something to offer for everyone – be it shops offering unique, one of a kind goods, top brands for the devout shoppers, fine dining and nightlife, or an entertaining day out for the whole family. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the plethora of activities available at the destination – neither fans of nature and adventures, nor the lovers of busy town centres and retail therapy will be lacking for things to do in Swansea.
The city centre is a vibrant hub hosting hundredths of shops as well as the splendid Swansea Market – an indoor feast for the senses overflowing with food stalls and delicacies, as well as quirky shops selling anything from crystals to handbags.
Those wanting to explore the Welsh heritage, Swansea offers a choice of museums – including both Wales’ oldest one and the newest. The National Waterfront Museum also offers entertainment for all family members, for those parents who have already tried out the city’s many picturesque and award-winning parks and gardens like the Clyne Gardens and the Singleton Botanical Gardens, and let their kids have a swing at the Go Ape at Margam Country Park.
A must see for sports lovers is, of course the impressive Liberty Stadium, home to Swansea City FC and The Ospreys, while those who prefer finer arts can have their pick of art galleries and theatres.
Just on Swansea’s doorsteps is the promenade overlooking the bay which goes on for miles all the way to the village of Mumbles, and the Swansea Marina which draws the attention of all sailing enthusiasts.
