Historical Sites to Visit in Gower

If it's history you’re in search of, look no further. The peninsula is inundated with ancient sites from the Neolithic Cromlechs such as Arthur’s stone to the great Norman castles which are scattered around the coast line.

Within a ten minute walk from the B&B you have Giants Grave, a Neolithic  Severn valley tomb and cathole cave, where in 2011 the oldest known cave art in Britain was discovered. A site overlooking the cwm was also recently excavated yielding a large quantity of roman artefacts. A  longer walk (30 mins) will take you to Pen-y-Crug chambered tomb and the nearby iron age hill fort to be found on Penmaen burrows. At the bottom of the drive (1 mile) is the Gower Heritage Centre in Parkmill. It's a great place to visit and begin to get a feel for Gower’s heritage.
