  • Very interesting castle especially if you have a guided tour with a helpful and information volunteer guide as I did. Beautiful views, reasonable entrance fees, lots of windy spiral stairs to discover and climb and much much more. Also the local area of Mumbles is delightful to explore with the pier, lovely shops in Newton Road, a good selection of cafes, bars, restaurants etc.
  • Didn't have time to go in but appears to be very nice. If you're lucky you might get parked in the nearby Street where you can park up for an hour for free. The castle is one of the smaller ones, but with stairwells and balconies that make it fun for the children. Great views from the top so worth a quick trip.
