Oystermouth Castle sits majestically on the hill in Mumbles, with stunning views overlooking Swansea Bay.

There are 600 castles in Wales, but there aren't many which come with a better view than this one!

Over recent years the castle has undergone conservation work to ensure the castle structure is safe and sustainable for the foreseeable future. Now the public can explore parts of the castle that have been hidden away for centuries and learn about the castle’s exciting history.

Features include ancient graffiti art from the 14th century, plus people can come and explore the medieval maze of deep vaults and secret staircases and enjoy the magnificent views over Swansea Bay.
