Swansea, Wales’s first ‘Human Rights City’, is a thriving city of celebration.
Over the years, it has become an increasingly diverse and inclusive place to live and work in. It boasts of people and culture from around the world at the heart of the city centre embraced through its food, festivities, cultural and community life. Swansea offers many places for our international community to feel at home. It succeeds in offering children a flying start in life through its educational establishments as well as recreational provisions. It encourages people to learn successfully, providing opportunities for everyone to benefit from a good place to live and work.
Only a stone’s throw away, the Victorian resort of Mumbles, also known as the ‘Gateway to Gower’, offers a fantastic array of attractions, including a pier, traditional boutiques, craft shops and ice-cream parlours. The Gower Peninsula – designated Britain’s first ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’– extends west of Mumbles in a succession of stunning coastal and rural sceneries.
To the east, the ‘Waterfall Country’ at Afan and the Vale of Neath is a haven for walkers and bikers alike. A journey west, takes you to Britain’s only coastal national park: Pembrokeshire. Swansea is also privileged to be less than an hour’s drive from the Brecon Beacons National Park.
