The Gower peninsula was declared the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1956; in recognition of the area's outstanding landscapes. Nowhere else in the UK can such a diverse range of landscapes and habitats be found in such a small area. As a result Gower supports a very high diversity of animals and plants; it is one of the richest places for wildlife in the British Isles and contains the greatest concentration of protected sites in the country.
Enjoy an opportunity to discover the unique wildlife, habitats, plants and animals of Gower. Wander through our wildflower meadow and watch dragonflies, damselflies and the occasional newt in our pond.
