Connect Swansea with Slow Ways
We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks
more walks and reviews are needed to fully connect Swansea to the verified network. Can you give a hike and help?Give a hike!
Slow Ways linking Swansea and Gorseinon, Gowerton, Neath, Pontardawe, Pontarddulais, Port Eynon, Port Talbot
Great Britain / West Glamorgan / Swansea
Swansea’s seven Slow Ways are 46% checked
Help connect Swansea
Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.
Give a hike and help get a for every one of Swansea’s Slow Ways.

I went back the following weekend to explore some of the paths leading from it!...
Excellent route as not only do we get the excellent cycle path down Clyne Valley but also the might Railway pub near Upper Killay! Easy and straightforward and often scenic....
May have to leave Swansea along a horrid A road but can soonneasy divert off this to the east and follow more or less parallel quieter road....

Nice easy walk, mainly paved and follow in large part the Wales cycle network route 43....
We were lucky enough to have amazing weather so we were able to do the walk safely. Some parts of the walk could be made easier and there are also parts where it's not accurate on the map. Many stys to cross over and the final leg of the walk has cycling and walking lanes....
Takes a slightly odd detour up to to Amazon roundabout and another through the Bay campus rather than sticking to the main road and there's a lot of time spent on the cycle path that runs parallel to the dual carriageway at the Swansea end which is easy and fast on wheels but mildly unappealing on foot - for this stretch the route offered on the Swanea route along the canal path is nicer for the Port Tenant to Briton Ferry stretch....
Only one unpaved section, along the canal from Jersey Marine to Port Tenant and you could follow the route of the cycle path alongside the main road as an alternative if needed....
