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.

Great walk through Mumble with you and Sonjia. The early morning sunshine was especially bright which sometimes was very glary for photos and sometimes by comparison placed objects in the shadow. The view along the beach was extensive and the water glistened, it was certainly serene and very beautiful both close up and from the perspective of the castle. I got a good shot of your favourite pub watering hole Adrian, which was very quaint and inviting with the barrels on the pavement. A pleasant and enjoyable walk.

A lovely way to start your day, with a stroll around the Mumbles. Adrian ( and his wife) took the s walking through a park and a churchyard, finishing at a castle. One hint: ensure your camera is straight: lots of slanting horizons when looking out at the bay.
