Follow this heritage trail to discover the history of Swansea's docks and waterfront, and to find out about the current redevelopment of the area.

The trail is about a mile and a half long, and starts and finishes at the Swansea Museum in Victoria Road. For information on the museum, car parks and public transport, follow the links on the right.

There are places to eat and public toilets on the route, and it's all on level ground, suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
