01792 is the telephone area code that is designated to all new phone numbers registered in the Swansea area by default, therefore if you want to call someone in this picturesque Welsh city you should first dial 01792 followed by the remaining six digits of the UK phone number. Similarly if you have received a call from a number that starts with the 01792 prefix then it is almost certainly from a person or business in Swansea.

How to make an international phone call to Swansea
Calling Swansea from outside the UK is a simple process which you can easily replicate for any other UK telephone number. You should firstly remove the zero ‘0’ from the 01792 prefix and then replace this with the international dialing code for the United Kingdom which is ‘+44’, thus leaving you with +44 1792. You can then dial the remaining six digits as normal, so if you wanted to call the recently refurbished Glynn Vivian Art Gallery from abroad on their general enquiries phone number 01792 516 900 you should instead dial +44 1792 516 900.
Cost of calling an 01792 (Swansea) phone number
Calling all 01 and 02 phone numbers within the UK will cost the exact same rate, which varies depending on what time and day you are calling from. At peak times this will be around 12p per minute plus your landline provider’s standard access charge, but please check with them to get a detailed cost breakdown of your phone calls. If you have free mobile minutes on your contract or tariff you can use them to call a Swansea number from your mobile, therefore making the call effectively free of charge. Again, please check with your provider for full details as calling UK telephone numbers from a mobile without these minutes will usually cost more than equivalent landline-to-landline calls.
