Evidence suggests that people have lived in and around the present-day city since the Stone Age. The Romans later occupied the area before it likely became a Viking trading post.
The earliest known form of its modern name appeared in the first charter, granted between 1158 and 1184, recorded as “Sweynesse”. In 1215, King John granted a second charter when it was noted as “Sweyneshe”. By the 1800s, Swansea had become a key centre for copper-smelting.
The first half of the 20th century was a difficult time for Swansea, beginning with the decline of its heavy industries. During the Second World War, the city suffered significant damage from German bombing, particularly the Swansea Blitz of 1941.
Thankfully, things started to look up after it was granted city status in 1969. Now, the area has become a popular tourist destination, with several Afternoon Tea Swansea establishments to choose from.
