Swansea Marina lies at the very heart of the city’s redeveloped and award winning Maritime Quarter.  We are surrounded by restaurants, shops and marine businesses and bordered on one side by our own Sandy beach.  The busy city centre is only a short walk away with many other attractions close by.

Getting to Swansea Marina By Land

Road access to Swansea is excellent with London only 3 and a half hours away on the M4 motorway.  From the East leave the M4 at Junction 42 and follow the A483 westbound.  From the West leave the M4 at Junction 47 and follow the A483 south.

A regular National Express service provides coach links from London and the Midlands, calling at Swansea’s Quadrant Bus Station, close to the Maritime Quarter.  First Cymru operate a regular Shuttle service from Cardiff Bus Station to the Quadrant.

The railway station is also close to the city centre, with a regular service from London Paddington.  Connections to the Midlands, South coast, the North and West Wales also go from here.

The nearest international airport is Cardiff International Airport

Getting to Swansea Marina by Sea

Access to and from the Marina has been greatly improved by the River Tawe barrage.  The lock is manned by our staff and access is almost continuous, except at low tides.
