About the tour

Sitting at the far end of Swansea Bay, the village of Mumbles has recently made it to the New York Times' list of Places to Love in 2021 and it is not hard to see why. Get here before the crowds of NYT readers.... With a fascinating history stretching from Norman lords through Dylan Thomas to Catherine Zeta Jones, Mumbles has its own castle, lighthouse and pier. It had the first ever regular passenger railway service, it has a fascinating literary history and survived the bombs of the Second World War. This short walk will show you the cottages and castle, the history and heritage, the sights and sounds which make up this unique part of Wales. Join this tour to see the Gateway to Gower in the company of locals, Adrian and Sonia.


Meet Wales Guides

Wales Guides

Sonia and Adrian have been guiding tours for over twenty years. Adrian is a native of Swansea with an Irish mother and a Welsh father. He has worked all over Europe as a tour guide and actor. He has a special affection for the works and story of Dylan Thomas, and has recently qualified as an official Green Badge guide with the Wales Official Tourist Guide Association. Having spent her childhood in Spain and Belgium, Sonia has a life-long affair with languages and all things European. She trained as an actor in London, and has worked in theatre, film, voice-over, teaching and travel. She has also been a European tour manager since 2000. Sonia eventually settled in Wales, making a home in the picturesque coastal village of Mumbles near Swansea. As well as guiding, Sonia and Adrian run a touring theatre company, Lighthouse Theatre. Join them as they show you around the cities, coastline and magical mountains of their beautiful land. Croeso i Gymru a ddiolch yn fawr iawn am ddod

Mumbles is a lovely place. This was a calm, walk around the pier and beach and up to the castle. Loads of information and great views too!

What a lovely wander this morning! I could have split the trip in two and heard more detail, or just lingered on passing sites (the boats dry-docked were so picturesque! And the castle, pubs, town streets...all of it!) Thanks so much for a wonderful tour!
