Mumbles Lighthouse, completed in 1794, is a lighthouse located in Mumbles, near Swansea. The structure, which sits on the outer of two islands off Mumbles Head, is clearly visible from any point along the five mile sweep of Swansea.

The 23 hectares of Mumbles Hill was declared a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) in 1991 to protect the site for both wildlife and people.
Once you have made the climb you are rewarding with a magnificent view of the sweep of Swansea bay, a peep at the light house and the bays of Bracelet Bay and that of Limeslade. Home to over 200 plants and fungi and wild life.
Defensive gunnery positions were built on the hill in World War II. Remnants of the 623rd Anti-Aircraft Battery gun emplacements and control bunker are still visible on the hill.
