Walking in Swansea, Mumbles & Gower
Thinking of stretching your legs around Swansea, Mumbles and Gower? Walking is one of the most popular things to do here. Our survey says so. And weâ€™re not surprised â€“ the routes you can take are all pretty special.
Take an easy stroll along the prom or a more challenging hike across moorland, along the Gower Coast Path or through woodlands, itâ€™s your call. And there are plenty of Gower walks with cosy pubs along the way. The perfect setting to stop and drink up the views over a pint of locally brewed beer!
The Great Outdoors
Itâ€™s great to get outdoors, and there are Â plenty of great walking routes here. The whole gang can buff up on their history with wonderful ancient buildings and landmarks along the way. Explore the gentle trails around the Lliw Valley reservoir, where you donâ€™t need to be at the coast to see water!
In Swansea Bay, you can walk along over 400 miles of public rights of way. Make the climb to Penlleâ€™r Castell and you will find yourself at Swanseaâ€™s highest point with amazing views, but donâ€™t just take our word for it!
Along the trails you can absorb picturesque fishing villages, vibrant towns and villages and even feel like a royal in the occasional unconquered castle. Venturing to the most westernmost point of Gower, you will find â€śgloriousâ€ť Rhossili home of award winning walks, impressive hey!
Wales Coast Path
One of Swansea and Gowerâ€™s biggest walking highlights opened in 2012, and we love it! The Wales Coast Path allows walkers to explore almost the entire Welsh coastline, now thatâ€™s a lot of coast to conquer! Taking you through the countryâ€™s heritage, communities and jaw dropping landscapes itâ€™s definitely a special place.Â Financially supported by Government bodies and European funding this spectacular pathway is kept in tip top condition and available for all to enjoy.
Keep those eyes peeled for a cafĂ© to enjoy some rewarding post hike cake or ice cream!
