Wales by the Sea. Scenic Swansea lies at the Eastern end of the Gower Peninsula. The city has looks to be proud of. After the German bombing raids in WWII destroyed much of the industrial landscape, the town centre was completely rebuilt. Since then it has won awards for its design. The Wales in Bloom title has also come its way many a time. Also every pub here seems to come fitted with a plant-swarmed trellis. If not then certainly a colourfully decorated white, yellow or pink-washed facade.
