Clyne in Bloom
Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our bed and breakfast.
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.
Tuesday 21st to Saturday 25th May

Last year the attendance record was off the chart and for 2019 it'll be even bigger with even more exciting air display teams and entertainment.
event promises to add something really special for evening visitors to enjoy. Anyone who’s ever seen hot air balloons by night will know what an amazing sight they are.
Airshow After Dark
A UNIQUE summer’s evening of music, action and airborne excitement is set to transform the sky above Swansea this July.
For the first time, hot air balloons and night-flying aerobatic teams will be gathering to party over Swansea as part of the Wales Airshow weekend.
The special event from 8.30pm on July 6, which will also feature music from 1969, is being staged to help celebrate the city’s 50th anniversary and the show is expected to be really exciting.
“The hot air firing balloons will be spaced out and tethered along Swansea beach and we’ll also have the Fireflies Display Team – two display aircraft with fireworks firing off their wings – doing a night-time stunt show.
“Also planned is a night-time jump by the Tigers parachute display team, one of our Wales Airshow regulars.”
On the ground there will be live music nostalgically taking people back to the late 60s to celebrate some of the sounds topping the charts in the year that Swansea was first designated as a city.
