See & Do
Swansea is Wales’ second largest city and is positioned along the 5 mile stretch of coastline known as Swansea Bay. Also nearby is the Gower Peninsula – not to be missed for a number of reasons!
Situated on the Heart of Wales train line, the city is an excellent base for exploring South West Wales however Swansea itself has much to offer visitors itself. The Grand Hotel has a perfect location, just 10 minutes walk from the heart of the city centre.
Local Attractions - Attractions include the award winning National Waterfront Museum, The Dylan Thomas Centre and not forgetting Rhossili Bay too.
Shopping - You will find over 230 shops located in and around the indoor Quadrant shopping centre but make sure you take a visit to Swansea Market to pick up a hand crafted souvenir as well as sample local delicacies including locally caught cockles, Welsh lamb and not forgetting our famous Welsh cakes!!!
Nightlife - A night out can include sampling the many bars and clubs of Wind Street, a visit to the Casino, listening to a Welsh choir at the Brangwyn Hall, seeing a show at the Grand Theatre or dining out in one of the nearby restaurants.
Many visitors to Swansea also head just out of the city centre up to the now famous Liberty Stadium – home to the Barclays Premier League home team known as the Swans plus the Ospreys rugby team! The city is also home to the only 50m swimming pool in Wales based at the Wales National Pool also made famous by being the training pool of Para-Olympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds.
