Swansea is Wales' second city and is a lively, bustling area with plenty going on to entertain visitors of all ages
Located in South Wales, Swansea began life as Sweins eg or ey, which translates as Swein's Island and started to grow in the 13th century. Later, the wool and leather industries became significant as the town continued to grow until the Black Death hit in 1348 and is believed to have wiped out half of the population.
