Activities and Family Activities in Swansea
With wonderful culture, breathtaking scenery and mouthwatering cuisine, Swansea makes a great case for being one of the best cities in the whole UK. Though Swansea lost out on their bid for UK City of Culture 2017 to Hull, there is cultural gold oozing from every corner of the city. Swansea is home to several literary and music festivals, including Proms in the Park, while big names regularly perform at the Liberty Stadium, the Grand Theatre and the newly-refurbished Brangywn Hall. And the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery – currently going through a multimillion pound redevelopment project – is just one of the many celebrated galleries in the city. There’s a perfect balance of urban and country in Swansea and the plethora of green spaces dotted around the city offer wonderful areas to walk, play and contemplate. At the top of the long list is Singleton Park, with acres of unspoiled space alongside a botanical gardens and boating lake. There’s also Clyne Gardens, with its wonderful floral displays, and Cwmdonkin Park, where Dylan Thomas was inspired to write much of his poetry.
