Less than a mile away is Singleton Park, the largest urban park in Swansea ' it's a nice spot for a walk through the botanical gardens, or to relax by the lake in summer. There are several community events held here throughout the year, including the annual Proms in the Park, where you can listen to orchestral classical music.
The town is a stunning mix of different architectural styles, from Victoria to Edwardian villas, and has several notable buildings. Visit St Paul's Church, St Benedict's Roman Catholic Church, Sketty Hall and Hendrefoelan, a Tudor-style stone mansion.
