    4. Sightseeing In Swansea there are many areas of natural beauty, beaches, museums and places of interest. The Gower is a beautiful area, where you can go on country walks, horse riding, outdoor activities, boat trips and general sightseeing. Mumbles is very popular. Tourists flock there, to visit the amazing beaches and go on boat rides and tours around there. The pier is also a very popular attraction there. The Brecon Beacons National Park is a small drive away from Swansea. It is home to much wildlife and the mouth watering views from the top of Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in the park.

His first rescue, in June 1931, when he saved a 12-year-old boy, went unreported. A few weeks later, this time in front of a crowd, Jack rescued a swimmer from the docks. His photograph appeared in the local paper and the local council awarded him a silver collar. In 1936, he had the prestigious 'Bravest Dog of the Year' award bestowed upon him by the London Star newspaper. There are about 5 castles in Swansea. Some of them are mostly in tact.
