#InspirationWednesday – Swansea

For #InspirationWednesday this week, we cross the border into lovely Wales! Swansea is our city of choice, with its tranquil seaside location. The area has had an interesting past, including a predominant industry of copper mining in the 19th century and being invaded by the Vikings and Romans!


The area has been steadily growing in recent years, in business opportunity and the size of the university, which sits with first-rate sea views. Being the second largest city in Wales and the second cleanest city in the UK, Swansea is an attractive city for those looking for a mixture of rural living but with close proximity to amenities and attractions.
