A Swansea Cultural Mini Itinerary

A Swansea Cultural Adventure


  • Check in for your overnight stay at Morgans Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel situated in Swansea City Centre and housed in a grade II listed building, which was previously home to the port authority.
  • Head to the Dylan Thomas Centre to explore the ‘Love the Words’ exhibition. You will hear some of the world’s most well-known voices reading lines from famous Dylan Thomas works; the voices of Prince Charles and Richard Burton are among those to feature. Also included are new interactive touch-screen displays that focus on Dylan’s technique, explore the notebooks he wrote in Swansea between the ages of 15 and 19, and cast a light on the circumstances surrounding his death in New York City in 1953.
  • Enjoy lunch at The Swigg (named after a buoy in Swansea Bay – South West Inner Green Grounds), located in the Maritime Quarter in a grade II listed red brick warehouse, part of Swansea’s seafaring legacy. Included on the menu are Salt Marsh Lamb shank, Cockles, Laverbread & Leeks and Welsh rarebit flavoured with Gower-gold Ale & homemade brown sauce.
  • Discover Swansea’s Glynn Vivian Art Gallery. Set within the heart of the City, the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery (founded in 1911) has developed a significant Collection covering a broad spectrum of the visuals arts from old masters to contemporary artists, with an international collection of porcelain and Swansea china. The dynamic exhibitions programme provides a platform for artists based in Wales to present their work in a local national and international context. The Gallery also hosts national and international touring exhibitions of major contemporary artists and art historical shows.
  • Head to Museum Green discover the interactive and high tech approach to Wales’ history at the National Waterfront Museum, then step back in time to Swansea Museum. In contrast to the Waterfront Museum’s hi-tech experience, Swansea Museum is the oldest museum in Wales.
  • Enjoy your evening meal at the Grape and Olive. Dine at the top of Wales’ tallest building with 360 degree views across the five mile sweep of Swansea Bay, towards Mumbles.
