Wales - Swansea, Gower & Carmarthenshire (PDF Chapter)
This is the Swansea, Gower & Carmarthenshire chapter from Lonely Planet’s Wales guidebook.
Swansea delivers something approaching big-city sophistication. On its doorstep is the Gower Peninsula, which offers surfing, watersports and undulating hikes. Inland, rural Carmarthenshire has nationally significant parks and gardens scattered about.
