Events in Swansea: children & families

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our bed and breakfast.

May 2017

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.



Friday 16th November to Sunday 6th January 2019

Waterfront Winterland

Museum Park - 25mins walk from our guesthouse


You came in your thousands to enjoy Swansea’s award winning winter attraction last year and we’re hoping our 13th year will be the best yet, as Museum Park (in the grounds of the National Waterfront Museum) will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland once again.


Waterfront Winterland kicks off the festive weekend when it opens on Friday 16 November. Open until 6 January, it’s a ‘must-pay-a-visit’ attraction for all the family with ice skating, funfair and festive food.


Enjoy ice skating on the Admiral ice rink; experience the festive family funfair, and the delicious foods from the Alpine dining cabins!


We have a range of rides to suit everyone – for those that like a bit of an adrenaline rush, to the traditional carousel for those who prefer a more gentle ride.


Waterfront Winterland really is the perfect place to celebrate Christmas in Swansea!
