There are plenty of things to do in Mumbles. They say you learn something new every day, so why not learn a few things when you visit? Surround yourself in the history and tradition that this area is steeped with. There’s a Lighthouse built in 1794, and a Victorian Pier. Oystermouth Castle is also well worth a visit, sitting on a hilltop with fabulous views overlooking the sea.

If you feel the urge for a bit of retail therapy, Mumbles will suit perfectly. There’s a range of high end shops, independent boutiques and quirky galleries, you can really spoil yourself when you visit Mumbles! Designer labels, handmade crafts or even surfing gear, you’ll find it all here." Text Source: (visit link) & (visit link)
