Perched high above the glorious Rhossili Bay, the National Trust car park and shop is a great place from which to explore the delights of the area.
National Trust Rhossili
The National Trust cares for over 26 miles of Gower's beloved coastline. This includes much of the area around Rhossili, the award winning beach, Worms Head and Rhossili Down.
The large, patrolled car park is open all year round and offers free parking to members of the National Trust. For visitors who are not members, charges apply from 9.00-18.00 daily. A short stay option is available.

Adjacent to the recently sympathetically developed car park which welcomes visitors whatever the weather, the toilets (currently council owned) are open 24/7. Due to covenants on the land, NO OVERNIGHT PARKING (Except hotel guests) is permitted.
The National Trust shop is housed in former Coastguard buildings which date back to the 1930s. Offering a wide range of gifts, souvenirs and tasty treats along with a wealth of local information and advice, it really is the place to both start and finish your visit to the area.
The Visitor Centre has a varied programme of exhibitions from local artists, along with more local information.
