Cultural Tours

The mythical west Wales tour.

On this tour you are accompanied by a historian with a deep passion and knowledge of Wales. You will learn some Welsh, sample traditional Welsh food and learn about the ancient history and culture of Wales. Gareth, your guide is a fluent Welsh speaker and he will give you an insight into Wales that wouldn't be available with a standard tour operator. <br>The area we will visit is dotted with quaint old towns and picturesque villages which seem untouched by time. The South West is the home of Pembrokeshire coast national park, and is an area renowned for the beauty of its beaches and coastline. For the lovers of castles there many to discover with Carreg Cennen, Pembroke and Kidwelly being three of the most impressive.<br>An example of a tour could be a visit to the wonderfully preserved Norman Castle at Pembroke, then lunch in the beautiful medieval port of Tenby followed by a stop off in Laugharne, the former home of the poet Dylan Thomas.

Found inside Swansea university, they could make it easier to find with some signs but plenty of students about to ask the way. Once inside it’s divided into two sections, upstairs Life and downstairs Death. The children loved both with plenty to see and do with knowledgeable students handy to pass on lots of information, ours particularly enjoyed playing the Egyptian game called Senet in Life and mummifying in the Death part of the exhibition. An enjoyable few hours with a reasonably priced cafe nearby on the site on the weekend we were there, it’s probably open in the week as is the costa coffee place virtually opposite.

A small place but well worth a visit if you love all things ancient. I loved it and could see that school visits would be good too. Bit odd finding parking. Walked up from some short distance in the rain. Exhibit not sign posted on campus.

I have been here several times with my children as the volunteers make the experience an enjoyable one. There is plenty of activities to keep the children entertained. The activity back packs and torches are a great touch. Every time we head to Swansea we make a visit here as its one of our favourite places to visit. Massive shout out to all the volunteers that put a great amount of effort in to educate their visitors.

We spent a damp Saturday afternoon with our 5 year old granddaughter in the Egypt Centre at Swansea University. What a fascinating place to visit, staffed with very knowledgeable volunteer guides whose enthusiasm was infectious. Although consisting effectively of only two rooms, the exhibits and activities were displayed cleverly to draw you in and take you through the contrasting themes of 'Death' and 'Life' in ancient Egypt. Our granddaughter was in her element and took a worryingly wrapt interest in the mummification presentation! And it's all free!
