Swansea is just east of the picturesque Gower peninsula in south Wales, the country's second city, with nearly a quarter of a million inhabitants.

Looking out over the tranquility of Swansea Bay, the city is surrounded by some of Wales' finest countryside and as such attracts ramblers and beach-lovers alike. With the delights of it's castle, it's galleries and museums, alongside Wales' largest outdoor market, Swansea is a magnet for visitors and, since the peninsula was declared the nation's first area of outstanding natural beauty, that looks set to continue.

The city sprouted from a number of smaller settlements around the bay during the Norman occupation, but Swansea didn't come into it's own until the 16th century when the docks became the main export point for Welsh limestone, when copper and tin mining flourished in the west country the city housed huge smelting works.
