Attractions and Places to Visit in Swansea

The suburbs of Swansea, Wales' second-oldest town, extend as far as the lovely Gower Peninsula. A port at the mouth of the River Tawe, the city grew in size thanks to the export of iron, coal and copper (the latter once so important that it leant Swansea its nickname of 'Copperopolis'). Now an important trading center, university town and industrial base, Swansea is also a big draw for tourists thanks to its vibrant cultural life. The city has a number of remarkable attractions, which are worth seeing and enjoying.
