The 19-mile long Gower Peninsula was the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), designated back in 1956. Famous for its beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline, Gower packs in a lot of variety in a relatively small geographical area. The south coast is dominated by limestone cliffs and sandy bays, whereas the north coast is low-lying, with salt marshes and dunes. Inland are secluded woodlands and wild moorland grazed by the famous Gower ponies. The AONB is also home to over a thousand archaeological sites, including medieval castles, churches, caves, Iron Age forts and a cast-iron lighthouse. Twenty-six miles of Gower’s coastline, including the salt marshes visible from the festival site, is owned by the National Trust.
