Located on southwest cost of Wales, Swansea is a vibrant modern waterfront city, with a rich cultural and maritime history. Home of Wales’ most famous writer and poet, Dylan Thomas the city imbues the spirit of creativity with its wonderful theatres, excellent museums, galleries, thriving live music scene and plethora of trendy restaurants and cafes.
Centre stage is taken by the beautiful Maritime quarter which is home to many of the city’s main attractions and spectacular marina. Nothing could be more convenient that mooring your yacht and being literally a stones-throw from the very hub of city life. With all the marine services you would expect close at hand and fantastic sailing to be enjoyed along the spectacular 34-mile Gower coastline, it’s no wonder so many seafarers head there every year.
If you enjoy going out on the town, then prepare to fall in love with Wind Street, 500 yards of incredible atmosphere and fun with countless bars and pubs ranging from karaoke to pole dancing, live music venues to funky discos. Entertainment wise Swansea spoils visitors rotten, with a year round programme of theatre, ballet, concerts, comedy shows and opera. History buffs won’t be disappointed either, as Swansea has no less than five castles to explore as well as one of the best maritime museums in the UK. And if you want a little time-out there’s a choice between the wonderful, unspoilt beaches of Gower or the enchanting woods, waterfall, hills and valleys that lie inland.
Be it a short break, a night out, family holiday, sailing holiday or a simple recharge you’re looking for Swansea has something to suit. Friendly, fascinating and fun in equal measures it is a City with huge heart and, if anything, almost too much to offer.
