Take a leisurely stroll along the iconic Porthcawl seafront while you hear how the town evolved from its humble beginnings as a coal port, into the popular seaside destination it is today.
As you take in majestic sea views on this walking tour, you’ll be regaled with Welsh myths and legends, including one about a famous pirate, and a ghost story from Porthcawl’s beloved Grand Pavilion. The paranormal isn’t confined to Porthcawl’s buildings, though, and a terrifying creature is said to have plagued the town for many years.
You’ll also hear about:
• Tusker Rock, also known as “shipwreck island”
• Barrels of Guinness buried in the sand
• Porthcawl’s unique castle
• The Elvis impersonators that descend on the town annually
From its awe-inspiring transformation over the decades to the quirky traditions still observed today, Porthcawl is a unique seaside town. I look forward to sharing it with you!
