Life in Swansea has a lot to offer because of our interesting museums, busy nightlife and great sporting venues and events, including the famous Swans, Swansea Football Club. As a result, the city is very popular with local and international students who are looking for an exciting place to live with a low cost of living.
If you are more interested in spending time outdoors, there’s a great choice of activities to do. The Gower Peninsula with its award-winning bays and beaches is very close to the city. Whether you are looking for peaceful and relaxing surroundings or more adventurous activities such as rock- climbing and horse-riding, or white water-rafting and quad-biking, you will find it on the Gower.
