Swansea Marina Reviews
Visit the marina Sep 16, 2008
Firstly from the top just off Victoria Road you have the original maritime quarter contains the Dylan Thomas Centre with its exhibition and cafe, the Dylan Thomas Theatre, Swansea Museum, the Tram Shed and easy access to the National Waterfront Museum. You will also find bars, restaurants and lovely old buildings.
Moving into the new Marina you have the marina itself with its moorings and boats, small cafe's and businesses, a yacht club, car park and superb restaurant - Gallinis. The marina also contains thousands of apartments and town houses, a huge range of designs, many of them are currently empty creating a sometime surreal atmosphere.
Finally where the Marina joins the sea you'll find a beautiful beach and the start of the 5 mile Swansea Prom; complete with a public art trail and fascinating Swansea observatory.
An interesting place for a short walk or a day out.
