Mumbles

Details

Mumbles is famous for its small, independent shops and boutiques, selling everything from high-end fashion to casual surfing gear; traditionally-carved Welsh lovespoons to American folk art; local seafood to continental charcuterie and handmade chocolates.

Or treat yourself to a relaxing spell in one of the several beauty salons dotted around the village, providing services from award-winning hairstyling, to holistic massage therapy and luxury spa treatments. Most shops and salons are concentrated in the Newton Road, Dunns Lane and Mumbles Road areas.

Nearby beaches include Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay, both just minutes from Mumbles' shops and restaurants. Wake up and take in that sea air and experience one of many activities in the area, whether it's a boat trip or a walk along the coast.

Mumbles has been settled since ancient times, and its history is still very much on display throughout the village. Mumbles Lighthouse, built in 1794, still warns passing boats of undersea sand banks – you can view it best from Mumbles' Victorian pier.

Mediaeval Oystermouth Castle was once home and fortress for the Norman Lords of Gower, and hosts outdoor theatre performances during the summer months.
