Description: Whether you’ve just arrived in Swansea for the first time or you’ve been here for years, chances are you might need to grab a few things to make life more comfortable. Come with us for a trip to IKEA!
If you don’t already know what IKEA is – it is a huge shop that sells everything that you need for the home, from warm blankets to cutlery and from plants to saucepans! Check their website out for some inspiration - Stylish Affordable Home Furniture & Accessories - IKEA
It is also famous for being very reasonably priced, so this is a good opportunity to purchase some things you might need for your new home in Swansea. Please be mindful that you’ll need to carry these items on the coach back, so we do not advise buying large pieces of furniture!
IKEA has a restaurant so you can eat while you’re there (the meatballs – and meatless balls - are known across the world!). The location of IKEA is close to several other large shops as well as a McDonalds and Starbucks, so it’ll be possible for you to visit these as well if you want - but make sure you are back to meet the coach on time
