Travelling to Swansea
Swansea is easily accessed from the M4 junction 47 if you’re travelling from the Carmarthen direction, or M4 junction 42 from the Cardiff / London direction – just follow the Wales National AirShow signs. Get directions to Swansea.

We recommend that you car share by using Liftshare, which will allow you to see who will be travelling to the AirShow and help you to find a suitable lift.
Walking And Cycling
Local people are being encouraged to walk or cycle to the AirShow if possible. Cycle routes are open, although Swansea Prom will be very crowded around the ground display area at St Helen’s and each afternoon during the air display so please use the cycle track on the other side of the road.
Buses will be running as normal – check timetables at Traveline Cymru’s website. There may be delays due to heavy traffic.
Drop off at the Civic Centre (County Hall) at one of the bus stops then move the vehicle to the coach parking facility in the LC / Oystermouth Road car park.
There are loads of great places to stay listed on the official visitor information website visitswanseabay.com.
