Events in Swansea: children & families

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our bed and breakfast.

May 2017

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.
