As Wales’s second largest city, Swansea sits on the sandy and picturesque south-west coast. With an estimated population of 241,300, it’s a growing city with plenty to see and do.
Swansea is a city with a rich cultural history that has stayed strong throughout the area’s modernisation. Festivals and performing arts are a big part of life in Swansea, with the Grand Theatre and Palace Theatre being two main performance venues, as well as the Festival of Music and the Arts, which is held every autumn. All this and more make it a fantastic place to buy.

Public transport covers a large area of Swansea with regular buses running both around the city itself and out towards Cardiff and other parts of Wales. Roads are busy in the summer, so in the better weather, many residents cross the city on foot.
Swansea boasts good links to two major cities. Situated on the M4, you can expect a commute to Cardiff to take around an hour either by car or train. A journey to Bristol, also along the M4, will take around one and a half hours.
Offering the amenities and nightlife of a city alongside a stunning coastline, it’s no wonder that Swansea is fast becoming a destination for home buyers. Although the city is on the up, house prices are still very reasonable. The average house price in Swansea is £158,791 – almost £100,000 below the national average.
