Best Things To Do & Days Out In Swansea, Glamorgan and Cardiff

There are lots of cool things to do in Swansea! Experience the charm of the Welsh seaside in an eclectic mix of history and heritage.

The beaches in this part of Wales are renowned for being stunning, so it makes sense to include a visit to one in your day’s itinerary. Langland Bay Beach is five miles out from the centre and holds Blue Flag Awards. The sand is soft and the waves are popular with surfers, swimmers and those who are just looking for a paddle!

If this spot has got you inspired then Gower Coast Adventures will take you on a journey of the whole coast. Watch birds take flight and see where they nest and, if you’re lucky, you may even spot dolphins playing in the distance.

With your explorer hat on go towards the centre to visit Plantasia – a tropical jungle right in the heart of the city where you can discover plants that grow in the depth of the rainforest, see monkeys, insects, snakes and more and wander through diverse climates.

Swansea family days out wouldn’t be complete without a trip to LC Waterpark, which has three zones of aqua-based fun and activities making it the biggest indoor waterpark in South Wales. There are thrill rides for adults and older children, as well as pools for smaller children. The famous Board rider will have you testing your balance as you attempt not to get wiped out! Once you’re out of the pool you could even try to scale the huge 30ft-climbing wall!
