Planning your visit
Mumbles is the largest village in the Gower and
as good a base as any for visiting the peninsular. For those who like
some bright lights after a hard day in the open air, its main advantage
compared with the rest of the Gower is its wide choice of amenities
and nightlife. Good cuisine of all kinds is readily available, and many
of the pubs also offer very decent, generously proportioned food.
There is a broad mix of hotel, guesthouse and some self-catering accommodation,
though if you intend to visit in the season you should plan well ahead
and book in advance. There is more than enough to see and do, especially
if the weather is fine, and you need not fear boredom if the weather
proves to be fickle, for then is the time to head into Swansea for the
museums, art galleries, Plantasia and so on, or check out the numerous
visitor attractions in the Gower and the outskirts of Swansea.
