Newton Road, Swansea

Sounds good to me :)
If you love the sea, great coffee, classy boutique shops and stylish restaurants and bars, then I would highly recommend that you visit Newton Road in the heart of the beautiful Mumbles, Swansea.

It's a great place to choose a gift for someone or just have a leisurely browse on a Saturday. I love Newton Road because it's a relaxing place by the sea, and yet it also has a bit of a hustle and bustle;  it really comes to life in the summer months. It's popular with visitors and locals who are keen to support the local independent businesses dotted along the street.
I love how you can see the sea in the distance!
Beautiful flowers at Maureen Cottey Florist
Coffee in the sunshine at The Coffee Denn and Mumbles Coffee
 Oyster Gallery; one of my favourite shops. Lots of home decor items with a beach theme. Well worth a look!
Pooch parking! I love this :)
Just a selection of the lovely boutique shops and Jones Bar & Kitchen
Oystermouth Castle dates back to the 12th century and sits on the hill overlooking Newton Road and Swansea Bay.
The view from Oystermouth Castle. You can see Mumbles Pier in the distance.
Mumbles Farmers Market takes place on the second Saturday of the month from 9.00am to 1.00pm at the bottom of Newton Road. It has an enticing range of locally produced Welsh goods which are very hard to resist!

I spent a lovely Saturday morning in Newton Road. How do you like to spend your Saturdays? Angharad x
