Swansea is a city on the coast of south Wales and is the second largest city in Wales and lies within the county boundaries of Glamorgan. To the north of the city are the Lliw uplands which are open moorlands leading to the foothills of the Black Mountain. To the west is the Gower Peninsular, which was the first area in the United Kingdom to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the east is the coastal area around Swansea.
Swansea developed as a centre for metals and mining, especially the copper industry, from the beginning of the 18th century reaching its peak in the 1880's when 60% of the copper ores imported into the United Kingdom were smelted in the Lower Swansea valley.
Swansea Bay has a five mile sweep of coastline which features a beach, promenade, children's lido, leisure pool, marina and maritime quarter containing the museums the National Waterfront Museum and Swansea Museum. Also in this area is the Dylan Thomas Centre which celebrates the life and work of the author.
Swansea also has lots of outdoor activities to interest visitors including sailing, water skiing, walking and cycling. In fact part of the Celtic Trail and the National Cycle Network pass through Swansea Bay.
Located in the south east of England in the county of Kent, Canterbury is an historic city with its cathedral being the centre of the world wide Anglican Church. The cathedral, the oldest in England, dominates the city's skyline but there is more to Canterbury than its cathedral. The ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury is a small city and is best explored on foot. Walking trails or guided walks will help you make the most of your time here and to enjoy the winding lanes and streets, all with their own unique identity. Alternatively you may wish to relax and absorb the wonder of the city with a boat trip along the River Stour where will be able to appreciate Canterbury's finest and historical architecture set against outstanding, scenic views. The crystal clear waters of the Stour offer a home to ducks, swans, fish and other wildlife while the river banks have an array of bending willow trees and wild flowers. North of the city is the award winning Crab and Winkle Way which is mostly a traffic free, seven mile cycling and walking route based on an old railway line running between Canterbury and Whitstable. It's safe for children and provides a perfect place to picnic along the way in the heart of one of England's oldest forests.
