The beautiful city of Swansea
isn't the largest town in Wales, but it is definitely among the most attractive.
Beginning as a productive market town during medieval periods, Swansea
has developed into a fine coastal city of Wales.
|The city can be reached
by plane. However, the city's own airport is only opened for private aircraft.
However, Swansea is located just under an hour from Cardiff International
Airport, which is why travelling to Swansea is most commonly done by bus
and van connections from Cardiff.
While in the city, it is
easy to get around Swansea by bus, but taxis are also popular. The landmarks
in the city are located sporadically across the landscape, from the natural
beach bays to the old castle ruins. Swansea
hotels offer tours and advice for visitors on what to see and how to
Travellers of all ages will
be delighted with the number of great things to see and do in the city
of Swansea. When the sites of this remarkable town have been seen, what
sort of things can tourists get up to? Well, sport is one of the major
past-times in the city.
Football is extremely popular,
and the city's main league team, known simply as Swansea FC Swans, plays
in the second tier league in the United Kingdom. They have been quite successful
of late, almost securing a spot in the top flight (English Premier League)
last year. In addition to the football team, the people of Swansea really
love there rugby team - the Ospreys. They play in the Heineken Cup, and
do well each year. There is nothing better than going to a rugby or football
match when visiting the city of Swansea.
Water sports are another
popular activity in Swansea. Visitors can go swimming at any of the sandy
bays on the city's coast, including Langland Bay and Caswell Bay. In addition
to swimming, the people of Swansea take part in a lot of other water sports
too. Wake boarding is quite popular, along with yachting and kayaking.
There is plenty to do around the water when visiting Swansea.
Swansea has a number of interesting
shopping malls, but for tourists, these are not the places to shop. Handicrafts
are more popular for visitors, so shopping to buy these type of gifts can
be done across the city. Don't forget to buy a hand crafted spoon when
visiting Swansea. These seem to be extremely popular.
|Live music is another great
activity tourists can enjoy, especially along the waterfront. There are
a number of lovely cafes and bars that provide wonderful live music events.
However, it is best to ask at the hotel for specific locations!
If sightseeing is your thing,
but everything has been seen, why not try from a different angle? Flights
over Swansea are a common attraction for guests to the city, and can be
organised from the Swansea Airport. Visitors have a great chance to see
the large Gower Peninsular also.
There are so many festivals
held throughout the year in Swansea that visitors will more than likely
find themselves in the middle of one when they arrive.
Some of the most popular
festivals in the city include the Swansea Festival of Music and Arts in
October, Swansea Bay Film Festival, and the World Party Weekend in the
Children and families are
also well looked after when they arrive into Swansea. The Chocolate Factory
would have to be the most famous place to visit for the whole family, although
children usually get more excited than the adults! Another activity for
the young ones is the crazy golf centre of Mumbles Road, not to mention
the Discovery Centre in Brynmille Park.
