The condition of the castles varies from intact to ruinous, but each is remarkable to explore and located near the sea. The award-winning bays and beaches offer pristine sands and cliffs. Remains of Bronze Age people who inhabited the region have been found in local caves. Visit Tooth Hole Cave, the sacred place where the ancient people layed their dead.

The Gower Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places I've seen in the UK.
Even beautiful in the rain. Lovely walk on Rhossili down despite a howling gale and occasional downpours. more »
