Six Things You Didn’t know you could do in Swansea
Jun 3, 2021
Now that venues can open indoors for the first time in nearly five months, we wanted to share our favourite leisure spots with you, which you may not know you could enjoy in the city centre.
1. Go on a Tropical Rainforest Adventure
Why travel to the Amazon rainforest when you can head to Plantasia for an adventure in our very own tropical rainforest? Crawl through the under growth, come face to face with crocodiles and dare to climb high in the canopy with the parrots! Wherever your adventure takes you, it’s a definitely one your family will remember for years to come.
2. Get a hole in one and have a whole lotta fun
Putt yourselves out of your misery with a trip down to Bunkers! on Little Wind Street. Bunkers! is the perfect place for a family afternoon, or the place to tee off your night out. Bunkers! Has two 12-hole crazy golf courses, an electro darts board and multiple ping pong tables, so there is an activity for everyone to enjoy. Even if you aren’t ‘bunkers’ about golf, you can always head to the caddy shack for a cocktail slushie or a bite to eat.
3. Break out of prison
..Or a bunker, or a Voyager spacecraft. Channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and solve a murder mystery at Breakout Live Swansea. You and your team will have one hour to use every ounce of wit and resilience you have to bust out of the escape room and solve the mystery before you. No matter what scenario you choose, this will definitely be an outing that won’t want to miss out on.
4. Feet up, film on
Head on down to Swansea’s unique indie film house, Cinema & Co, to experience a blast from the past with a timeless film and lounge on the comfiest sofas around. It’s the perfect place to cosy up for a family film night or date night. They’re currently taking bookings for their half term ‘kids club’ screenings of Beauty & The Beast, Trolls & Scoob! Alternatively, you can hire out one of their private screening rooms for gaming nights, kids’ birthday parties, hen dos or even roller-skating nights!
5. Try food from all around the world
From Thai, Japanese and Indian, to Chinese, Greek and Mediterranean… You name it, Swansea has it. Scattered throughout the city centre we have the perfect mix of chain and independent restaurants and takeaways, all fully reopened and waiting to give you a taste of their culture’s cuisine.
6. City of art
Swansea is bursting at the seams with theatres, galleries, museums and live music venues. Its arts scene is ever growing as new exciting venues emerge and beautiful pieces of art don our streets. One of our favourite venues is Volcano Theatre, which is currently exhibiting its #421Days – an exhibition of lockdown photographs from the people of Swansea.
