Gwyr is the old Welsh name for the Gower peninsula in south Wales, UK. Following the Norman occupation of Glamorgan, the lordship of Gwyr or Gower passed into English hands, and it subsequently became one of the most Anglicised regions of Wales.

Gwyr is home to several menhirs or "standing stones" from the Bronze Age. Of the nine stones, eight remain today.
