    try Mumbles there is a car park at the far end by a restaurant called Verdies where many vans over night, Car park charges stop at 7pm. we go there allot just to sit and watch the world go by.

    Rob,
    I read a while back that The Pilot of Mumbles had closed. This saddened me somewhat as I always loved that old bar. However looking on the web it seems that it may have now reopened. As you are a local perhaps you may know.

    Thanks Mike

    I don't think you'll get an answer Mike. This thread is nearly 2 years old and Rob is no longer a full member :Smile:

    Boy racers

    We overnighted at the Mumbles 2 weeks ago.
    Both car parks were made very intimidating at night due to boy racers.
    Loud music and noisy exhausts until the early hours and this was midweek so dread to think what it's like at weekends.
    It's not like I am a fuddy duddy.....I have a 22 year old daughter so used to some noise but I think they do it on purpose in these car parks.

    Just thought I'd update. The bracelet bay is marked as no camping or residential use and says it is locked at 11.. Having said that I'm currently parked in a fabulous place on the front great views, co-op nearby as well as a Costa for coffee in the morning and £6 for 24 hours. Who says the UK doesn't have Aires
