The centrepiece of the Gower Heritage Centre is a working 12th Century corn mill, but there is far more to it than that. Just as corn grinding was only one activity that went on around the Gower Peninsula at this time, the Heritage Centre has a wide variety of crafts and trades to show visitors, from a blacksmith’s forge to a wool mill. There are a range of smaller exhibits too, all focussing on the rich history of this corner of South Wales.
No trip to the Gower would be complete without a tour of some of the sights that make it a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Heritage Centre staff are the ideal guides. They can take visitors out to experience the best that the peninsula has to offer, from gorgeous sandy beaches to ancient monuments to exhilarating cliff tops. Top it all off with a traditional cream tea and you’ve got a wonderful day out for the whole family. Various themed walks are also available, and coaches are more than welcome- tours can even be arranged on your own coach, although there is ample parking at the centre itself.
There are tearooms and gift shops on site, plenty of kids activities, and the smallest cinema in Wales. Gower Heritage Centre is a wonderful place to spend the day in any weather and in any season. They also hold a range of special events throughout the year so check the events program on their website!
