It’s Arsenal’s first visit to Swansea in the Premier League era on Sunday, January 15. Here is a guide from 'Visit Swansea Bay' to help Arsenal fans make the most of their away trip to top flight’s newest city.
Swansea boasts a wide range of clubs, bars and restaurants. Wind Street is a modern café quarter by day and the liveliest street in the city by night, making it the perfect place on a Saturday night out, pre-game beer or post-match meal on the Sunday.
With over 90 places to eat and drink, often including locally sourced ingredients and fresh produce, there is sure to be something suitable for all ages and tastes for those seeking the genuine Welsh dining experience.
If you are looking to combine the liveliness of the city centre with the stunning views across Swansea Bay, the Victorian seaside village of Mumbles (sometimes home to Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas) is a great place to spend some relaxation time.
Swansea is the only coastal city in the Premier League, benefiting from 36 miles of unspoilt coastline. The Gower Peninsula was the UK’s first designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, and is the perfect place to unwind after the match, whether you want to surf, play golf or walk.
