Set in the heart of the Gower Peninsula just west of Swansea, South Wales, the Gower Heritage Centre was established in 1990 as a countryside crafts center situated in historical and beautiful surroundings.The 12th-century water-powered corn and saw mill was renovated, and experienced crafts people took up residence on site. Today the centre is recognised as a vibrant crafts and rural life museum that welcomes visitors from all around the world.The Gower Heritage Center is a fun way to spend your day, whether you’re a group or school and would like to take a coach tour to the Gower and explore what we have on offer, or if you’re just passing by and are just popping in for a bite to eat at our Tea Rooms we’re sure you’ll find exactly what you’re after here with us.We are only a 15-minute walk from one of the most breath-taking bays in the Gower, Three Cliffs Bay. The whole peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has its own very distinctive culture that owes a lot to the mix of Welsh, West Country, and Norman ancestry.
If your interest lies in rural Gower and the history of agriculture then we have a wide selection of displays for you, from our fully operational Water mill to the outdoor Museum of antique farming and cultivation. We are open throughout the year with a daily timetable of guided tours and demonstrations and an annual programme of special events.
Our craft workshops including puppet theatre and pottery are a great way to spend the afternoon on a school trip. For more information please give us a call.
