Glamorgan

UK travel information

Glamorgan is a historic county in South Wales and has many visitor attractions. The main city of Cardiff has an active port and has grown up around trade. It is most well known for the Millennium Stadium and rugby. Listening to the voices of Welsh singing at a home match is a magical and passionate experience. Annually the National Eisteddfod of Welsh singing and Music is held in this area.

Visit the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff for an insight into Welsh history and culture. Further along the coast Swansea is home to the University of Glamorgan and is the gateway to the Gower Peninsula and West Wales. The Maritime Quarter is an interesting part of Swansea, and the Mumbles is a popular water sports area.

Travelling to the Gower Peninsula is like arriving at a different world with peaceful beaches, four of which have blue flag status, and stunning cliff top scenery.



The beach around Rhossli leads to salt marshes and cockle beds and there are many ancient historic sites including menhirs in the Peninsula. The historic castles on Gower include Oystermouth Castle and Penrice Castle and make an enjoyable visit. Look out for the prolific bird life in this area with many sea birds to observe.  

A pleasure beach on Barry Island is a popular holiday spot, and there are many walks in the area around Glamorgan. These include the Aberdulais Falls and the Southern edge of the Brecon Beacons. Castell Coch is a beautifully gothic revived castle north of Cardiff at Tongwynlais and worth visiting. Near Cardiff the Rhondda Valley is famed for its coal mining which has all but closed and an air of regeneration is in this area. Glamorgan is a place to get to know and to experience Wales at its best.
