Mumbles boasts a range of attractions and areas of interest - here are a few of our favourites;
Oystermouth Castle - On a forty foot high limestone ridge overlooking the pretty village of Mumbles, Oystermouth Castle is a spectacular location. The earliest building remains at Oystermouth Castle, the keep in the central block, date from the early 12th century. The site will be used for filming the new Richard Attenborough blockbuster, Ironclad, due for release in 2010.
Bracelet Bay - Bracelet Bay is the first limestone bay after the vast expanse of Swansea Bay. With lots of rock pools to explore, easy parking and nearby restaurants and bar, it's a great family day out! Please do however be aware that there are strong rip currents.
Mumbles Raft Race - An annual August event, the Mumbles Raft Race is a great afternoon event, raising funds for the very worthy RNLI. Crews scramble to reach the finish line in full costume, trying not to sink along the way!
