The Swansea district was one of the four local government districts of West Glamorgan, Wales from 1974 to 1996. It was formed from the areas of the county borough of Swansea and the Gower Rural District, from the administrative county of Glamorgan.

It inherited the city status of the county borough and so was styled as the "City of Swansea", and was governed by Swansea City Council. On March 22, 1982 the city was granted letters patent raising the mayor to the dignity of Lord Mayor.[1]

The district was abolished in 1996, when it was merged with most of the Lliw Valley district to form the larger City and County of Swansea unitary authority.
