    Swansea – Wales' scintillating city by the sea

    The identity of Wales' 2nd-largest city has shifted dramatically over the centuries, from quaint market town, to thriving industrial centre, to cosmopolitan tourist resort. Today, it enjoys a reputation as one of the UK's friendliest and most laid-back coastal destinations. Its centre is a fun mish-mash of eclectic architectural styles, with crumbling ancient landmarks standing side-by-side with sleek modern shopping centres. Meanwhile, the surrounding countryside encompasses blissful sandy beaches, pristine parks, dramatic cliffs and historic forests. Swansea holiday rentals range from cosy urban apartments to sprawling seafront houses, so you're sure to find one that suits your needs.

    Working up a sweat in Swansea

    Swansea is a haven for outdoor pursuits enthusiasts of all persuasions. The glistening waters of Swansea Bay may be a little too fresh for swimming at certain points of the year, but they offer ideal conditions for thrilling pursuits like surfing, jet skiing and power boating. If you'd rather keep things gentle, the ruggedly beautiful shoreline simply begs to be explored by kayak, sail boat or stand-up paddle board. Those who prefer to stay on dry land are similarly spoilt for choice. You could challenge the kids to a round of mini golf, or jump on a horse and head off in search of breathtaking coastal views.

    Swansea's crumbling castles and historic homes

    You'll find an eclectic array of attractions within easy reach of your Swansea holiday rental. The state-of-the-art National Waterfront Museum celebrates innovation and industry in Wales, from the Industrial Revolution to the present day, through immersive, interactive exhibits. Best of all, admission is free. Lovers of literature will want to set aside time to poke around the Dylan Thomas Birthplace and Family Home. Here, you can see how Wales' best-loved poet went about his everyday life. For an enthralling trip back in time, head to Oystermouth Castle, a stunningly preserved Norman stone castle constructed in the 12th century.

    Sunny summers in Swansea

    Swansea holiday rentals are highly sought-after throughout the summer season of June to August, when the local weather is typically pleasantly warm, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. However, this being Wales, summer showers are also a common occurrence, so be sure to pack your umbrella. Spring and autumn tend to be agreeably mild, and are great times to visit if you're keen to avoid the peak season crowds. Winters are generally chilly rather than fiercely cold, and invariably rather rainy.

    Swansea's abundant natural wonders

    Swansea is perched on the impressive Gower Peninsula, the UK's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Opportunities for spectacular scenic hikes are practically limitless, and the peninsula is home to an enthralling diversity of flora and fauna. Perhaps the most famous residents are the adorable wild ponies that live on the Gower commons, but the region is also a birdwatching hotspot, with everything from buzzards to guillemots making their home here. Anglers are equally well served, with the surrounding waters teeming with bass, cod, mackerel and other prized catches.
