  • Excellent morning at the castle. Plenty for the kids to explore and very good information for us adults. Well worth the £7.50 family ticket
  • Very much a ruin rather than a grand furnished castle, however still investing nonetheless. Just a shame that it costs so much to visit, surely the council could afford the upkeep and encourage more people down to mumbles to visit!
  • 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
  • Lovely grounds. Great for picnics.
  • Well worth a visit if only for the views.
