Days Out in Gower & Swansea

There are some amazing days out in Gower & Swansea! Whether its simply the beautiful natural landscapes and quiet forgotten villages of the peninsula, or a day trip into the city of Swansea with its distinct old and modern quarters, galleries, museums, restaurants and night life. Closer still is the fishing village of Mumbles with its Victorian pier, traditional pubs, and ice cream parlours that the children simply love - The long seaside promenade is great for families.

Here are a few of our own recommendations for some great days out (all of which are within easy reach of Parc-Le-Breos B&B), followed by a couple of good websites where you can find further information.
