The latest images of the highly anticipated Swansea Arena have been released – and this time they are 360 degrees – and give a glimpse of what the huge new development inside will be like.
The £ 135 million project on Oystermouth Road will open later this year, with a capacity of 3,500 seats to host world-class music events and conferences.
Developers have already posted images of the building at various stages of construction and from the air in images of drones. And now they’ve produced a series of 360-degree visualizations of what the arena will be like.

There are also views of the stage and auditorium from the first-floor balcony. Alternative views include looking at the stage from the back of the auditorium. And there’s a 360-degree view of the exterior of the arena and views of the city center, including the new Copr Bay Bridge.

Robert Francis-Davies, a member of the Swansea Council’s investment, regeneration and tourism cabinet, said: “The first phase of Copr Bay, including the sand, is still underway to open this autumn. It is a catalyst for Swansea’s £ 1bn regeneration program, which brings new jobs to the city center. As our stunning virtual reality images show, the arena is something that excites us: it will bring first-class lectures, work, opportunities and entertainment to local people. “
Copr Bay Phase One includes a new coastal park, new homes, businesses and car parking.
