Port of Swansea

Welcomes don’t come much warmer than in Swansea, Wales’ second city and the most central gateway to the entire south coast. A marquee, sited on the quayside offers a real Welsh welcome and an opportunity to sample some of our delicious local produce. Our staff will provide visitor information and itinerary planning to help visitors make the most of their stay. There is adequate coach parking at the quayside and shuttle buses can be provided. Whilst the vessel is in port it can also use the opportunity to take bunkers, water, stores and dispose of waste.
