Welcome to Gower

The Gower Peninsula is both beautiful and unspoilt, there are many historic features located over an area that measures just sixteen miles by seven miles wide. Notably, Gower was one of the first places designated 'An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' under the Act of 1949. This website aims to highlight and promote main features and attractions of Gower and the surrounding area, whilst also giving guidance to visitors, helping them to maximise their enjoyment of South and West Wales.

The Gower has a varied landscape, the south coast has beaches and cliff paths whilst the north coast is dominated by salt marshes that lead into the Loughor Estuary. Worms Head and Rhossili Bay that are pictured form one of the most spectacular beaches in Britain.  Mumbles Head is where the Gower begins. The village of Mumbles is often referred to as the 'Gateway to Gower'.
