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.

Swansea Classic Vehicle Show 2018

Swansea City Centre - 20mins walk from our B&B


Enjoy a great Father’s Day in Swansea City Centre.


Swansea Classic Vehicle Show will take place in Swansea City Centre on Sunday 17 June from 10.30am to 4pm.


Swansea BID are excited to bring a new free event to Swansea City Centre for 2018. The new event, Swansea Classic Vehicle Show 2018 will streamline and build upon the good work and commitment of the Festival of Transport that finished in 2016. The Festival, in its hay day, attracted more than 400 plus vehicles and more than 4000 visitors from all over the region and further afield.


Swansea BID hope to replicate this popularity and move the event forward from 2018 onwards to affirm the Swansea City Centre event as one of the biggest in the UK.


There will be plenty of variety on display for the newcomer and the enthusiast including cars, motorcycles, scooters, commercial vehicles plus lots more – spread across the city centre from Castle Square along Oxford Street and surrounding pedestrianised roads.


While you view the classic vehicles, you also have plenty of shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants to pick up your Father’s Day present and enjoy a family Father’s Day meal.


A fun filled day for all the family!

Celebrate Armed Forces Day 2018 at the Wales Airshow!


Every year Armed Forces Day celebrates the contributions made to our country by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. This year Armed Forces day falls during the Wales Airshow, so a special celebration is planned on Saturday 30 June from 10.30am on Mumbles Road.


With the joint celebrations of Wales’ largest free event, Armed Forces Day and the centenary of the RAF, it’s sure to be a special occasion. There will be a large display of military stands and ground assets and ‘come and try it’ activities. There will also be a stage with military themed entertainment followed by the flag raising ceremony, accompanied by a piper and bugler. From currently serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets, come and show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
