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 centre 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 Centre 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.
