Top spots to swoop on for Swansea air display
TODAY and tomorrow, breathtaking aerobatic displays, state-ofthe-art military aircraft and vintage planes will be swooping through the skies of Swansea.
In 2017, more than a quarter of a million people took to the coast to nab the best views of the aircraft at the Wales Airshow, so we’ve put together a list of the lesser-known places where you’re sure to get an amazing view.
Of course, anywhere along the beach from Swansea to Mumbles will give you a good view, but with large crowds expected, you might not have much room for a picnic.
Okay, so this one isn’t even in Swansea, but the beach should be much quieter, while still offering panoramic views, and you’ll also skip the city-centre traffic.
You still might have to get here before the displays start to nab a bench facing the action.
This is sure to be one the most atmospheric places to watch the air show and arguably the best view of Swansea Bay there is.
If you are heading in from the west, then you may as well just set up for the day at Verdi’s to save you negotiating the city centre.
If it’s a high vantage point rather than sand that you’re looking for, then you could head to Kilvey Hill, which is 193m high and looks out over all of Swansea Bay.
Why not head to Wales’ tallest building, which is bang in the middle of the air show? Make sure to book a spot in advance to get a seat by one of the coveted windows.
