South Wales Cities & Coast | Wales

Visit Wales and explore the beautiful South Wales Cities and Coast, UK. Take a walk on the Gower Peninsula or the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, book a romantic weekend away or a luxurious city break.

South Wales in the UK offers everything you need for that perfect weekend break or Welsh holiday experience. If you’re visiting South Wales for a sporting event at Cardiff's Principality Stadium and looking for a place to stay, or fancy a weekend getaway in Swansea and the stunning Gower Peninsula then Show Me Wales has it all!

If taking along your four legged friend, dog friendly beaches and accommodation can be found all over South Wales.

The South Wales city breaks are not like your London Breaks or typical UK short breaks. You’ll find lots to do and places to visit. No trip to Cardiff would be complete without a look around Cardiff Castle and if you’re a Dr Who fan then check out the famous Dr Who Experience attraction in Cardiff Bay.

Stay in one of the many Cardiff spa hotels and if you’re looking for great deals on flights then check out the last minute flights straight into Cardiff airport.

Swansea City is famous for its beautiful Mumbles area and Gower Peninsula, but if you’re looking for a bit of nightlife then take a wander down to Wind Street, this is where you’ll now find a concentration of pubs clubs and restaurants.

If you’re a golfing fan visiting Wales then you’ll already be familiar with the Welsh city of Newport. Home to the Celtic Manor Resort where, in 2010, they hosted the Ryder cup and in 2014, Celtic Manor played host to the 2014 NATO summit.

With world class mountain biking at Afan Forest Park, the seaside at Aberavon Beach and Waterfall Country on the doorstep, the outdoors in Neath Port Talbot are well worth a visit.

The South East section of the Wales Coast Path covers the full length of South Wales Cities and Coast region from Newport through to the Gower.
