Swansea (pop. 188,000), industrial seaport in Wales, originally settled in the 1000s. Its 281 acres of waterfront docks on Swansea Bay export the products of nearby oil refineries, aluminum factories, nickel and zinc refineries, and coal mines. In the 1800s the city was a major copper trading center and produced great amounts of tin plate for cans.
