Full description
Welcome to Abertawe, the second city of Wales. Discover over 1,000 years of Swansea history, from its Viking roots and eventual Norman settlement, to its emergence as a copper trading force during the industrial revolution. Once the biggest town in Wales, Swansea has transformed throughout the centuries, especially across the last 300 years as Swansea became the biggest copper producing centre in the world, before succumbing to the worst of the Second World War. Swansea is now a desirable student haven, with its laid back beach lifestyle, while still maintaining its working class roots. The city now combines the architectural ramifications of the Second World War with the future, with the developments of Swansea docks and the brand new and shiny Swansea Arena and Copr Bay.
