Castles in West Wales

Oystermouth Castle Swansea

Oystermouth Castle

This Castle has stunning views over Mumbles and sits majestically on the hill overlooking Swansea Bay. The whole family will enjoy a fun day at this historic place.

A massive amount of work has taken place to stitch the castle structure back together making it safe and sustainable for the foreseeable future. Earth has been dug under the expert eye of Glamorgan Gwent archaeologists to expose private staircases leading from vaults to previous banqueting halls. Staircases have been lightened by lime washing walls, and made safe with rope handrails.

Views that have been hidden away for centuries have been revealed thanks to a 30 foot high glass bridge; ancient graffiti art from the 14th century can be spotted if you're close enough, and access to the castle has been dramatically improved. A whole maze of rooms have been made safe and accessible.

Oystermouth Castle is currently the responsibility of the Swansea City Council and supervised by the Friends of Oystermouth Castle.
