5 DAYS FROM £380

 

The vibrant waterfront city of Swansea lies on the edge of the five mile sweep of Swansea Bay. Birthplace of poet Dylan Thomas, the city is a cultural centre for art, home to numerous parks and gardens and houses the largest indoor market in Wales. The Gower Peninsula was the first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK and boasts some of the most breath-taking bays and beaches in the country. The much photographed pastel coloured buildings, narrow streets and fortified walls of Tenby are reminiscent of the Meditteranean and its’ busy harbour is always popular with both pleasure craft and fishing boats.

 

Our base in Swansea is the very comfortable MERCURE HOTEL which is located on the outskirts of the city within its own landscaped gardens. Features of the hotel include a brasserie restaurant and bar/lounge along with leisure centre with pool, mini gymnasium and sauna. All of the contemporary en suite bedrooms feature tv, telephone, hairdryer, and hospitality tray. Please note whilst there is no passenger lift, over half of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor.
