Bus station in Swansea

by christine.j

Is the Central Bus Station the same as the Quadrant Bus Station? I came across both names in time tables.

RE: Bus station in Swansea



I once stayed a couple of days in Swansea and explored the Gower-peninsula from there by bus. To be honest, I can't remember that there are two bus stations, so it must be the same. But I can't guarntee.

I hope this helps

Hi Christine.
I live 9 miles from Cardiff the capital of Wales and our bus station there is known as Cardiff Central Bus station, have you got this mixed up with the Swansea bus station, anyway Swansea is about 60 minutes from Cardiff by bus.

Yes, christine, the Quadrant Bus Station is Swansea's main bus station, next to the Quadrant Shopping Centre in the middle of the city.

By the time you get here, you will be an expert on Wales' public transport system ;-)

Thank you for your help. Lonely Planet Wales calls the bus station Central Bus Station, the Rough Guide just says Bus Station and Stagecoach give the name as Quadrant Bus Station. If they're all one and the same, it's a lot easier for me.
Sean, I'm far from becoming an expert on public transport in Wales, I'm still very much confused. It seems each route is being served by a different bus company, 66 coaches, stagecoach, Herefordshire bus company etc. I'm going to get the Flexipass, which is valid on all busses, so if I get into a wrong one by mistake, at least I'll have a valid ticket.

Travel Tips for Swansea

National Trust Visitor's Centre - Rhossili

by M0B1US

Rhossili is looked after by the National Trust and the visitors centre houses an exhibition on the area and a shop selling the usual gifts and books about the area.

The shop also is a great information point about the nearby area and has a list of tide times posted on an outside window by the door.

The Mumbles

by M0B1US

At the end of the Mumbles Rd on the western edge of Swansea Bay, are the two small islands standing at the end of the promontory apparently so named possibly by the Romans because of "their visual similarity to 'breasts'; 'mamma' in Latin and 'mammelles' in French". ;-)

Nowadays it marks the boundary between the Gower peninsula and Swansea Bay and is a popular spot to stop for a drink and bite to eat overlooking Bracelet Bay...

Swansea - Abertawe

by Myfanwe

Swansea is the second largest City in Wales next to Cardiff. It is situated alongside the coast about 20 Miles South West of Cardiff on the Mouth of the river Tawe. Swansea is a vibrant modern City with many things to do and see in the area. There is a fabulous shopping Centre with some lovely shopping arcades, also within the town you'll find the largest indoor market in Wales (apparently you can get the best tasting Lava bread here)!

Swansea has some lovely parks and gardens with Singleton Park being a stonesthrow away from the City Centre and Clyne Country park just a few minutes drive away.

The picturesque town of Mumbles is just around the corner with Oystermouth Castle and the famous collection of bars and restaurants which make up 'Mumbles mile'.

The Gower Peninsular is just a 30 Minute drive away from Swansea, the Gower was the first area in the United Kingdom to be granted 'Area of outstanding Beauty' (AONB) status. It is a fabulous area renowned for its' isolated beaches, rugged scenery, fabulous views and magical castles.

Swansea was granted City status in 1969 to mark Prince Charles's investiture as the Prince of Wales. The announcement was made by the prince on 3 July 1969, during a tour of Wales.

Much of the town was flattened by bombings during World War II but you can still see some remains of the Castle within the City Centre.

"Maritime Quarter"

In years gone by Swansea played a huge part in the export of Copper Industry earning its' nickname 'Copperopolis'. Nowadays, the revitalised dockland has been transformed into a peaceful waterside area known as the Maritime Quarter or SA1. Here you will find the Marina, Waterfront Museum, Art Galleries and of course Restaurants & Bars.

"Sport in Swansea"

Swansea is home to the National Swimming Pool and also has several cycle routes running through and around the centre - my favourite is the coastal path which runs the length of Swansea bay down to Mumbles.

A well kept secret in Wales UK is a beautiul town called the Mumbles just a 15 minute drive from Swansea train station.
In the summer you might think you are in Santa Monica CA, with it's palm trees and beautiful coastline. And there are surfers and jetskiers there from all over the world.
It has five different beaches from the rough terrain to the peaceful sandy beach.
Friendly locals and little crime. Lots of places to eat including pubs.

"Mumbles Bay"

You can see all around, I was only sorry I did not have a panoramic camera for this trip.
You can go there for a variety of reasons, family activities, watersports, music concerts, and peace and quiet.
