Swansea is an appealing blend of traditional and modern, known as the city by the sea. The old dock has been transformed into a marina, surrounded by stylish waterfront buildings. Your guide will give a brief overview of the marina before visiting the National Waterfront Museum, a former dockside warehouse, tracing the industry and innovations over the past 300 years. From Swansea travels along Swansea Bay, Mumbles, Bracelet Bay before entering the Gower Peninsula. The 19-mile peninsula has a unique combination of natural beauty shown in its rugged cliffs, golden sands and coves. At Langland Bay you can take a leisurely coastal walk to Caswell Bay, with ample time to enjoy amazing views, or if you prefer, relax at Langland and rejoin your guide and driver and travel onboard the mini-coach to Caswell. Lunch stop is at Rhossili, a delightful village where nothing much has changed here since 1956 when Gower became the first 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' in the UK. No pleasure domes or tacky promenades just a handful of eating establishments, golden sandy beach, a coastal path and at the end of the coastal path, Worms Head, a dramatic serpent shape stone causeway. The round trip coastal walk takes approximately 45 minutes and always receives great reviews.
