Dryad Bushcraft Prehistoric Gower Experience

What to bring

Gower is bordered by the Bristol Channel, the second highest tidal rise and fall in the world, and the Celtic and Irish Sea with the Atlantic beyond. The Gulf Stream passes nearby, thus producing warm sea currents.


While the climate is generally mild with Indian summers in September and October, the weather can be changeable especially as the Brecon Beacons mountain range is not too far distant.

It is therefore advisable to bring suitable clothing in the event of rain showers and the occasionally blustery wind, often experienced on the cliff tops and high places on Gower.


It is always advantageous to wear several layers of lighter clothing rather than one or two thicker items.

Comfortable walking shoes/boots or sandals ; beach walking involved

Rainproof light jacket

Head cover ; hat for sun as well as rain!

Sunglasses ; the sands and sea are quite bright in sunshine

Lightweight walking trousers or shorts

Cameras and binoculars (optional) if you wish to observe wildlife

Small day rucksack
