Swansea is a coastal city and county in South Wales formally known as the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan. Situated on the sandy South West Wales coast, the county area includes the Gower Peninsula and the Lliw uplands.
Swansea had a population of 169,880 in 2001 and is the second most populous city in Wales after Cardiff and the third most populous county in Wales after Cardiff and Rhondda Cynon Taf.

If you are looking for a fun day out, why not visit the well-known Mumble Head and Pier with the beautiful lighthouse and nice views of Swansea Bay. Or spend the day at Singleton Park, which is home to the beautiful Botanical Gardens based in the old walled area of Singleton Park. The gardens contain fine specimens of rare and exotic plants from all around the world. They are at their most spectacular during August when a full programme of events and tours make your visit even more special.
Living and commuting to and from Swansea is made easy by the access to the M4 and a brand new state-of-the-art Railway station with direct links to Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham and London Paddington.
For students and parents as well as scholars Swansea University offers a great variety of courses and degrees, as well as its connections to other Universities around the world.
