Can you manage SIX ice creams in one day? Only one way to find out!
From Clyne Farm Centre walk down to the seafront via Clyne Gardens. At Blackpill you will find ice cream stop number 1 The Junction Café. This Grade II Listed Building was once the generating station for the world famous Mumbles Train. Grab a cone, get your feet sandy & start walking along the beach towards Mumbles. Next stop is Ripples Ice Cream Parlour which usually has a huge range of flavours. Walk along the promenade until you reach your next ice cream fix…the famous Joe’s Ice Cream Parlour, which is set back from the seafront behind Prezzo. Made in Wales since 1922, a visit to Swansea is not complete without a Joe’s. Forget flavours here, sample their freshly churned classic vanilla. Join the locals by getting a takeout and enjoy it sat on the wall overlooking the sea.
For ice cream number 4 you need to carry on walking along the promenade to Verdi’s. This large glass building has lots of indoor seating if you need a sit down. It’s famous for its sundaes – so why not try one! For more sweet treats wander down to the Mumbles Pier. At the Beach Hut Café you can enjoy another scoop or two. Perhaps try a sorbet if you are getting full?! For the final flurry (see what we did there!) head up the steps opposite the cafe. Here you will reach the Big Apple, sadly no longer serving ice cream. But no problem, your final destination is in sight…Forte’s Ice Cream Parlour. Enjoy your sixth and final ice cream on a bench overlooking Limeslade Bay.
😉 LOCAL TOP TIP: For a bonus ice cream (why just have 6 when you can have 7!) sneak in a visit to Castellamare which serves a range of ice cream in its cafe.
