The climate of Swansea (Wales)
Swansea is located in the southern part of Wales on the river Tawe. Swansea is situated in the Swansea district. Swansea is a coastal place on the Channel of Bristol. Because of their quiet location on the Channel of Bristol the beaches here are very popular among tourists. According to several British travel magazines Swansea has the most beautiful beaches in the entire United Kingdom. The seaside resort of Mumbles has an original Victorian pier and lies in the vicinity of Swansea. Swansea has a moderate sea climate with mild winters and relatively cold summers. Temperatures are milder here all year round than in the higher regions in the interior because of its situation on the coast. However, it is because of these higher regions that Swansea is the wettest city in the United Kingdom. During the summer temperatures sporadically reach the high twenties. The highest temperature on record is 31.6 degrees Celsius.
