As Wales second biggest city, Swansea lies within the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan - nicknamed 'Copperopolis' after the lucrative Cooper trade in the 19th century, why not make Swansea your next holiday destination. With caravans sites a plenty there is plenty of choice in Swansea.
Enjoy the cleanness of the Blue Flag marina that is Wales' Waterfront City. Travel to the seaside village of Mumbles which still has a Victorian pier, independent shops and boutiques, and several restaurants and cafes. Where as the south coast of Gower attracts walkers, with a path stretching from Mumbles Head across the cliff tops, beaches and coastal woodland to Rhossili, and is a magnet for caravanners interested in surfing or rock pooling
Autumn is a great time for a caravanning holiday to Swansea as the county hosts a Festival of Music and the Arts, when international orchestras and soloists visit and play at the Brangwyn Hall, which also houses graduated ceremonies from the University of Swansea (which is open to have a wonder round). Visitors can also go to the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea Museum and Dylan Thomas Centre.
Caravanners should try the local foods, cockles and laverbread which are sourced from the Loughor estuary, so long as you can mange to understand the locals – Welsh is still spoken in many parts of Wales, and some of the pronunciation can be a little hard to get your tongue round! Maybe even ask locally born Catherine Zeta Jones for some lessons if you happen to see her wandering around the Mumbles on your caravan travels.
