South Wales Tourist Information & Visitor Guide
The cosmopolitan cities of Swansea and Cardiff set the tone for a fascinating region that stretches from the lush valleys of the Wye to the sandy reaches of the Gower Peninsula. Heading north, the Welsh Valleys beckon. Once so famous for their coal, the pits now lie silent but proud. To the north of the region, the beautiful Brecon Beacons add their own special touch of colour.
