50 fantastic things to do in Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay

Things to do in Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay

Year of Adventure
50 days out from a Gower B&B

This year we set ourselves a goal – to enjoy 50 incredible adventures in our area: local, fun-filled, family days out. We’re calling it #50days. Luckily we are spoilt for choice for things to do in Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay. In fact, here in South Wales we are surrounded by adventure – a National Park above us, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty next door, and all fringed by one of the most jaw-dropping, award-winning coastlines in the UK. Perhaps even the world?

And that’s why, this year, we’ve taken up the Visit Wales ‘Year of Adventure’ challenge. Come along on our journey this year as we wander through this spectacular hidden corner of Wales. Let us inspire you to push your comfort zones, feel the fresh air on your cheeks and perhaps try something new…

Our #50days shortlist is here. Actually, there are only 48 so far – local friends, your suggestions are welcome! All #50days challenges must be things to do in Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay, or within an hour’s drive of Langland Cove Guesthouse – the kind of days out that you might enjoy if you came to stay with us.

Read our posts below for an all-you-need-to-know guide for each adventure.
