  • Lovely place. Spectacular and Breathtaking views over the wonder full city of Swansea, the staff were lovely and it was reasonably cheap. Great land surrounding it. Highly recommend it, it was a lovely day out
  • Oystermouth is an interesting, much modified but significantly intact Norman castle, (originally built by the Marcher Lord William de Londres) with some odd opening hours. I'm not sure what I feel about the entrance fee to be honest, but it's a pleasant hour long visit. I understand that since I last visited, some tunnels and vaults have been uncovered.
  • Fabulous castle with panoramic views towards Mumbles and Mumbles head
  • Good place to visit in fine weather, commanding views of the mumbles
  • Well worth a visit if only for the views.
