Best of the Gower Peninsula

  • Walk the Gower Peninsula, home to some of Britain’s best coastal scenery
  • Dramatic promontory at Worm's Head and the award-winning Rhossili Beach
  • The fashionable and fun town of The Mumbles, gateway to the Gower
  • Charming and welcoming Welsh villages and local pubs
  • Salt marshes, freshwater pools, sand dunes and diverse bird and plant life
Walk the Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore trails that take you along sand dunes and towering grassy cliff tops, through woods, charming villages and past hidden coves, Iron Age promontory forts and Medieval castles. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of the Gower Peninsula. The first inhabitants recorded here were pre-historic and the oldest modern human remains were discovered in a cave on the south side of the peninsula in 1823. The Normans invaded in the 12th century, leading to instability and troubled times. Nowadays the Gower offers serene and peaceful landscapes, with award-winning beaches, nature reserves and the friendly Welsh people, with their wonderful lilting accents!
