General Information
Why choose Swansea:- great location by the sea, excellent services on a compact campus, friendly staff and close links with nearby city providers for meetings up to 1070. Great dining out from intimate restaurants to unusual banquet venues and social programmes with a difference. Top quality sports facilities including a 50m pool.
Location & Access
Few can rival Swansea's campus location, right by the sea. It is midway along the South Wales coast, has easy access to the M4 and is three hours from London by rail or road, with good links to the rest of the UK. Cardiff International Airport is an hour away.
Group Accommodation
The campus has hosted touring orchestras and sports teams, numerous special activity groups and prestigeous events ranging from international hockey tournaments to the British Chess Championship. Nearly all comment on the friendly and helpful staff who are always keen to please, making all the difference after a long day of activities, competitions or site-seeing. The wonderful location enables groups to take gentle coast walks after dinner or enjoy a film or live theatre on campus.
