Nice to sit in and eat your sandwiches or to get away from the crowds. Walking distance of the undercover market and the shops.

Once this was Castle Gardens, presumably expensive to keep the grass and plants in order so the Council turned it into an unimaginative concrete wasteland. Hopefully someone with more vision on the Council will see that what should be the heart of Swansea makes the...More

It's lovely to sit here in the sun watching a big sport game on the big screen but if it's raining you can't really do anything. In school holidays and Saturdays you can get a lot of teenagers hanging about especially by the McDonald's. Good...More
