Welcome to Swansea! We hope you'll love your time here - but we also know that coming to a new city can be challenging - where are the shops? what about places to eat? is there somewhere to swim? How do I even get there!

Join members of the International@CampusLife team on our Explore Swansea session and we'll take you on a tour of the city centre, showing you:

  • Shops - from fashion to the supermarket to Swansea's amazing indoor market!
  • Culture - galleries, theatre and museums
  • Transport - Swansea's bus and train stations
  • Leisure - Bowling, cinemas and the LC leisure centre
  • Food & Drink - from big name chains to independent cafe's

This is also a fantastic chance to meet some new people and make some mates too!

You can meet us by the bus stop:

  • Park Campus - steps outside Fulton House

We'll be taking the bus from campus to the city centre - so you'll need to purchase a bus ticket. We recommend downloading the First Bus App - this is the easiest and lowest cost way to buy your ticket, and we'll show you which one to buy on the day.

Once it's installed you just need to select the 'South & West Wales' area and local tickets will be available. If you can't access the app or wish to pay cash you can buy a ticket on the bus!

This is a relaxed and informal tour, so we don't have any set times for ending, and you'll be free to do your own thing afterwards.

We hope to see you soon!
