A Mumbles Mini-Adventure
- Visit the cosy but cosmopolitan seaside village of Mumbles. Full of local character and charm, Mumbles is home to handmade crafts, luxury boutiques and arguably the worlds’ best ice cream. Don’t miss the Lovespoon Gallery (the original specialists offering the largest collection of lovespoon designs from Wales’ best lovespoon carvers) and the Gower Gallery, which boasts a continually changing selection of paintings, ceramics, sculptures, and limited edition Giclee prints. Much of the work is inspired by the beautiful coastline of Gower with paintings of iconic views such as Langland, Three Cliffs, Caswell, Oxwich and Rhossili Bay.
- Head to Verdi’s for lunch, a cake or an ice cream! Verdi’s is a family run Café, Ice Cream Parlour and Licensed Restaurant with a reputation for authentic Italian flavour and quality. Situated on the sea front, Verdi’s overlooks the beautiful Swansea Bay.
- Take a leisurely morning walk along the Gower Coast Path from Langland to Caswell and back.
- Enjoy your evening meal at Bistrot Pierre. This recently opened, two-floor restaurant has impressive floor-to-ceiling windows, stunning French-styled interiors, a bar area and outside seating.
- Enjoy an overnight stay at Langland Cove Guesthouse, a boutique B&B with the warmth of a family-run guesthouse, located in Mumbles, just 200m from the lovely beaches of Langland Bay.
- Head to Oystermouth Castle. Sitting majestically on the hill in Mumbles, with stunning views overlooking Swansea Bay, Oystermouth Castle boasts ancient graffiti art from the 14th century and a medieval maze of deep vaults and secret staircases. 2018 Opening Times are Sunday 1st April – Sunday 30th September 2018, 11am – 5pm.
