Travel

 

How to get to the city    :

Air:         Cardiff Airport is 43 miles from Swansea. A bus service operates from the airport to Cardiff (Rhoose) Airport train station, where you can catch a train to Swansea, although you will have to change at Bridgend. Transfer time is about 2 hours.

Rail:       Swansea railway station is on the mainline from London Paddington.

                The stadium is about two miles from the station.

                Buses depart every ten minutes via routes 4, 4a, 120, 122, 125 and 132.

                A taxi will cost around £6.

Otherwise, if you have time on your hands, then it should take about 25-30 minutes to walk. From the station turn right and go up the High Street. At the traffic lights turn right into Neath Road and keep going until you reach the stadium on your right.

               

Road      Take the M4 towards Swansea

                Leave M4 at Junction 45

                Follow signs for A4067 towards the City Centre

Follow the signs for Stadium for approx 6 miles and then the ground will appear on your left hand side.

                Entrance to the Stadium car park is at the entrance to the Morfa Retail Park.

                Follow road around past Frankie & Benny's Restaurant, and take first left

                                 

Park & Ride:       Swansea Vale: 2000 places/£5 parking charge/Buses to Liberty Stadium 2 hours                                                 before kick-off

Directions to Park & Ride:

                From M4, come off at Junction 45, take the A4067, and follow signs to

                "Stadium Park and Ride"

Parking: There is some street parking to be had. If coming from the M4, you pass the stadium on your left and continue straight on towards Swansea, then after going under a bridge, there are a number of roads on the right, where street parking is available.

                It is then around a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium.

               

 

 

           

Accomodation

If you are staying in Swansea you are probably best advised to sleep in the city centre, rather than close to the Liberty, where there isn’t a lot to see and do.

There is a Marriott on the Waterfront, where there is also a branch of the Premier Inn and Morgan’s Hotel

The White House Hotel and Alexander Guest House are just outside the city centre.

The Dragon Hotel is located near to the railway station.

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
