Swansea Ramblers Walk
Swansea to Mumbles
19th April 2014
Leader: Helen Gough
Helen took us from the Civic Centre in Swansea for a walk along the beach. This Swansea walk stopped off in Blackpill for coffee at The Junction before resuming our stroll along the Swansea foreshore. Sunny again today but a bit fresh in the breeze.
Twenty of us enjoyed a relaxing stroll in fine weather and when we reached Oystermouth, some of us ended up in Verdi's for drinks and a pizza! A few of us caught the Mumbles land train back to Blackpill and walked back from there.
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.

Back onto the sand
Had about five new walkers out today
Mumbles is getting nearer
but we're not going quite that far!
Panoramic views of the hills
across the bay were wonderful today
Coming into Norton
Heading for Oystermouth
Up onto the promenade and for some, journey's end
Some of our newest walkers
who have discovered the joys of walking
with Swansea Ramblers
And everyone enjoyed it today
Now let's get to Verdi's!
