Get out there and explore what Wales has to offer this winter with a walk from Langland to Caswell Bay. It’s a beautiful walk and is the perfect answer to the question – what to do in Swansea?
Swansea may only have been a city since 1969, but its history goes back way further. Let’s take a look back at a brief history of our hometown.
If you are looking for the perfect venue to celebrate in style this festive season then look no further than The Dragon Hotel. We are now taking bookings for all our Christmas events throughout December.
We have a variety of options for you to choose from; a Christmas Party with entertainment from our resident DJ or a Cabaret Party with a live band and disco. Perhaps no entertainment is required and you would simply like to get together for a superb Festive Meal; lunch and dinner options are available. We are also able to accommodate private parties of different sizes and can also offer a Christmas Buffet package Sundays – Wednesdays if preferred. Alternatively you may wish to join others in an event where many groups get together to maximise the festive atmosphere – the choice is yours.
If you are looking for somewhere special to enjoy that perfect traditional Christmas Day Lunch then why not join us. We invite you to spend the day with us and celebrate in style with our traditional Christmas lunch. We’ll greet you with a glass of fizz and canapés upon your arrival and even take care of the washing up after the meal, so that you can relax and enjoy the company of those closest to you.
Celebrate New Year’s Eve either by enjoying a formal dinner in our Piano Restaurant, where you will be greeted with a glass of fizz on arrival and entertained by our resident pianist or celebrate the New Year in style in our Pembrey Suite, with music from our resident DJ and a celebratory glass of Champagne at midnight – there’s no better way to welcome in the New Year.
Make the most of our Christmas accommodation rate and extend your stay until the next morning. It’s not worth risking your licence by driving home after the party so why not stay overnight in one of our contemporary bedrooms? Check-in, relax and then join the party without the worry of how to get home.
If December is not a good month to celebrate, we’re happy to offer a Festive Meal, Christmas Party or Christmas Buffet event in January for parties of 50 or more, specifically for those who are unable to party before the big day. The decorations will still be adorning your event and we’ll transport you back in time to give you the opportunity to celebrate the season at your convenience.

The annual Porthcawl Christmas morning swim is now in its 50th year, with this year’s event set to be the biggest yet. Will you be one of the merry lunatics to embrace the freezing waters to raise money for some very worthwhile causes this year? Swimmers can register online or just turn up on the day, and there is no minimum distance that you have to swim. There’s also no set time limit on how long you have to spend in the water either, so there’s really no excuses!

Our hotel is great. But if you want to get out and about and explore the Swansea area, pull on your walking boots a warm coat, and go on a walk. The route from Rhossili Bay to Penmaen is one of the best, and passes through Britain’s first area of outstanding natural beauty. (more…)
