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 on Scotland's north east coast, the city of Aberdeen is a harbour city located roughly 120 miles north of Edinburgh and 400 miles north of London. The city does not attract as many tourists as other Scottish cities and as a result can feel more authentic. It is a good base from which to explore the surrounding region and take in the castles, golf courses, whisky distilleries and mountains.
Walking is an excellent way to get around Aberdeen, particularly around central areas, as the city centre is relatively compact. Walking is also by far the best way to appreciate the grand architecture of the city. However, the city is not that small (e.g. Union Street is one mile long) so for journeys outside of the city centre it may be better to use public transport.
The Aberdeen Art Gallery is located in a Victorian building that has an exquisite marble and granite main hall. Admission is free and the gallery contains modern works including pieces by Tracy Emin and Gilbert & George and more traditional paintings and sculptures including works by the Scottish Colourists.
