A traditional seaside resort with a prom, pier, marina, lighthouses and beach, the Mumbles lies at the western end of Swansea Bay and is the gateway to the splendid Gower Peninsula. It boasts two rocky coves known as Bracelet and Limeslade. Surfers’ favourite Langland Bay is a mile away. It was at The Mumbles in 1807 that one of the world’s oldest- running passenger railways was opened using real horsepower.
