Walks in Gower

Many people come to Gower to enjoy a steady ramble or a more strenuous hike. The views are magnificent and on a clear day, you can see to Devon, Lundy Island and over towards Pembroke.

If you are proposing to walk with your own group, I would recommend that the map that you buy is the OS Explorer (164) map for Gower. ISBN 0-319-23419-3
The scale is 1:25000 (4cm to 1km or 2.5 inches to 1mile). It is much more detailed than the ordinary OS maps. We wouldn't be without it.

There are some predefined routes that can be followed, such as "The Gower Way" and books that are available with suggested routes.
