What I can tell you is that the campus from Swansea is over the road from the beach and about 2 miles out of the city centre. It is housed in a huge park.
I doubt anyone will have any real experience of both. You need to make the decision on what suits you better.
Course, city, facilities, cost of living etc.
Is this for 2020 or 2021? If its 2021 then go to an open day or check if they have virtual ones.
I think it makes no difference, which one you go to , although where you are the happiest might improve performance.

In terms of rankings, Law at Swansea is ranked Top 10 in the UK for overall satisfaction (NSS 2020), and the university as a whole is ranked 6th in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2020). The School prides itself on offering a great student experience, supporting students throughout their studies.
Similarly, we ensure that students have numerous opportunities to enhance their practical skills, particularly through work placements opportunities.
We have a Director of Employability for the school who works with a team of colleagues to help provide outstanding support for students. As a university, we are UK Top 5 for Career Prospects (Guardian University League Table 2020) – joint with Cambridge, out of 121 UK Universities. Our Head of School, Professor Elwen Evans QC, is a practicing QC, and as she herself balances academia with professional practice, she has ensured that this is instilled in our school’s ethos and students’ opportunities. I'd be more than happy to provide you with more details on this if of use.
As those above mention, if you haven't already done so, I'd recommend signing up for one of our upcoming Open Days, too! https://www.swansea.ac.uk/open-days/
