Swansea University, with a rare secluded campus located in the center of Swansea City, is an incredible garden on the beach. The amazing university, facing the wide sea and lying against the hill, is located within a huge Singleton Park. A stone’s throw from the campus, the natural beaches are within our eyes, surrounded by mature parkland, including the most famous Singleton Park with a botanic garden and a grass garden, and on the edge of the beautiful Gower Peninsula. From the windows of the university classrooms and dormitories, you may appreciate, at any time and at any place, the beautiful beaches and charming Atlantic Ocean. In particular, a perfectly beautiful picture could be captured of woods, cherry blossoms, squirrels, swans, lakes, and varieties of birds. Here, a glimpse will surely dazzle us of the Gower peninsula, the most beautiful natural landscape in Europe and also of the seaside sunset, most beautiful in the world. The Swansea campus, selected by UK college students as one of the most beautiful university campus in the UK, is definitely a top priority of many UK students.
