  • A really good day out. It's so surprising what has happened in Swansea over the years. I liked the war stories
  • We have done make your own kite and copper plaiting here both equally fantastic xx the museum is good too with a hunt for the kids to encourage them to look everywhere xx
  • Nice day out with lots of variety.. good day for the kids and adults alike.. entry is free too which is always a bonus..
  • Great local museum, impressive WW1 display with a wealth of other locally focussed displays. Local action groups also well represented
  • Interesting little museum which houses two exhibition areas downstairs that change every few months or so, a room where craft events/kids activities take place and a room with local pottery, upstairs some archeological artefacts and a room full of curiosities. It may not be as big as the Waterfront museum on the other side of the green, or have as good facilities, but it's actually the better museum of the two.

Where to stay in Swansea

Accommodation in Swansea comes in a variety of styles. You can choose from luxury and budget hotels, affordable hostels, traditional inns, and cozy B&Bs. Not as formal or as expensive as most hotels, many of Swansea's B&Bs are run by local families of Welsh speakers, who have a vast knowledge of South Wales and are more than willing to share it with their guests. Even less expensive and just as interesting, several of Swansea's organic dairy and sheep farms comfortable lodgings to guests.
