Welcome to The Mumbles (Y Mwmbwls)

Once again fashionable, with bars and restaurants vying for trade along the promenade, The Mumbles received a boost to its reputation when its most famous daughter, Hollywood actor Catherine Zeta-Jones, built a £2-million luxury mansion at Limeslade, on the south side of the peninsula. Singer Bonnie Tyler also has a home here.

The origin of The Mumbles' unusual name is uncertain, although one theory is that it's a legacy of French seamen who nicknamed the twin rounded rocks at the tip of the headland Les Mamelles – 'the breasts'.
