Swansea is a town in South Wales located on the coast of Swansea Bay. Swansea is the second largest city in Wales, after the capital Cardiff. The weather here is, typically British, mild and wet. The city is said to be the rainiest city in the whole of Great Britain and the temperatures during the high summer rarely exceed 20 degrees.
The Wales National Waterfront Museum is well worth a visit. The focus is on Wales' industrial history and here are exciting stories and objects to take part in. For the art lover, we recommend that you pay a visit to The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery. The gallery is over a hundred years old and is considered one of the best. Here you can see works by local artists who have been active in the city for the past century.
One of the great writers and poets of the 20th century was Dylan Thomas. He was born and raised in Swansea. In the Dylan Thomas Center, you will find out more about the man who died in 1953 during a tour in New York. Every year a festival is organized to pay tribute to the author.
There are plenty of green spaces and parks in Swansea. One of the best is Clyne Garden. A section of the park is made into a fantastically beautiful Japanese garden with an eye-catching red wooden nest in the middle of the green.
The English cuisine is so much more is just "fish and chips" and white beans in tomato sauce. The kitchen is characterized by high quality with simple cooking methods. The cuisine has strong influences from the French cuisine but also from the Indian with its strong spice blends. A classic here in Swansea is Welsh rarebit, a kind of grilled cheese sandwich with mustard powder and Worcestershire sauce, which can be bought everywhere.
A real gem when it comes to Welsh cuisine is the Slice restaurant. Located a bit outside the city center, in the suburb of Sketty (73–75 Eversley Road), but well worth it. Our tip is to try the delicious tasting menu! Six well-composed dishes, made with love. The relaxed and lovely atmosphere in the restaurant is also a big plus. However, it is important to have foresight and book well in advance, as it is a very popular place!
The city's pride, the Swansea City AFC, plays in England's second highest league Championship. The home arena Liberty Stadium, which was inaugurated in 2005, shares them with the rugby club Ospreys. A lot of concerts are also organized here and the Wales national football team has played some international matches here.
