Swansea Parking

Parking in Swansea 

From market town to spa centre, port and copper production, Swansea has had a rich and varied past. It was even home to the very first passenger train service (from The Mumbles to Swansea centre), marking it out early on as a powerhouse for innovation and industry. Today, it’s the second largest city in Wales and one of the country’s most successful commercial, retail and tourism centres. It’s a fantastic city for visitors and locals, which is why NCP offers four conveniently placed car parks right in the heart of Swansea.

Points of interest

Like many of Wales’ coastal and strategically important towns and cities, Swansea is home to an early medieval castle. Much of old Swansea was demolished during the Second World War bombing blitzes, but older sections do remain along the predominantly Georgian and Victorian Wind Street, and the wonderfully named Salubrious Passage. Other points of interest include the Sir Frank Brangwyn's murals at Brangwyn Hall (originally destined for the House of Lords), and the Dylan Thomas Centre, celebrating the life and work of Wales’ greatest modern writer. Use Swansea car parks at Kingsway, Orchard Street and City Gates for easy access to all of Swansea’s central attractions.

Attraction & event parking in Swansea


Swansea Market

There has been a market on the same spot in Swansea for over 200 years, and today Swansea Indoor Market is the largest of its kind in Wales. It’s packed with stalls selling everything from clothes and gifts through to specialist outlets selling Welsh delicacies such as laverbread, Welsh Black beef and Penclawdd cockles. Park at NCP’s Kingsway or City Gates car parks in Swansea city centre and you’re minutes away from the market.​


Park Tawe Retail Park

This retail and leisure park has that ‘out of town’ feel but is only a few minutes from the centre of the city. Not content with just offering the usual selection of big brand stores, it also has a 10-screen cinema complex, a bowling alley, and even a large tropical plant house called the Plantasia. While there is onsite parking, it tends to fill up very quickly so make use of the nearby NCP Swansea car park at Orchard Street.​


Quadrant Shopping Centre

The Quadrant is one of the city’s most popular indoor shopping centres and has outlets selling everything from high end jewellery to boutique clothes and shoes. It also has plenty of well known high street brands under one roof, making it a good retail destination during the Sales. Park at City Gates car park and you’re a few minutes’ walk away from the Centre.


National Waterfront Museum

This excellent museum is exactly where you’d expect it to be; overlooking Swansea’s busy Waterfront in the Maritime Quarter. It takes visitors on a journey through the Industrial Revolution, which shaped the city throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s very much a hands on museum, with working machinery and frequently updated exhibitions and events. Find a parking space at Swansea City Gates car park and enjoy a family day out at one of Swansea’s best museums.


Swansea Bay

Once the home of a thriving oyster industry, Swansea Bay is now lined with sandy beaches and is a popular destination for tourists, water sports lovers and fishermen. The bay offers a great respite from the fast pace of life in the city, and is well worth a visit. Park at the City Gates car park and walk down through the Maritime Quarter to Swansea beach, just five minutes from the city centre.


Maritime Quarter

Formerly known as the South Dock, Swansea’s Maritime Quarter is now a busy marina filled with small boats and craft, and an extensive residential area. Many of the old warehouses have been repurposed and are now luxury homes or retail outlets, although the old façades have been maintained, giving the Quarter an eclectic feel. Find a space at City Gates car park and spend a day exploring everything the Quarter has to offer.


Swansea Station

Swansea Station is one of Wales’ busiest train stations, acting as a key gateway for thousands of commuters every day. NCP car parks in Swansea has a location right next to the station entrance, providing easy and convenient parking for commuters, with the option of purchasing a season ticket if you use the station on a regular basis.​
