Set up in 1989, the Friends of Oystermouth Castle is a voluntary group of people, who look after the day to day running of the castle during the open season.
The castle has recently undergone multi-million pound conservation work and these developments have made involvement with the castle more exciting than it has ever been.
Anyone can join as a Friend and volunteer. Whether you are newly retired, a student looking for work experience, or someone who has a few hours to spare – there are so many new opportunities to get involved in at Oystermouth Castle.
