  • Visited the castle two times. Single adult ticket, 3.50 pounds. Good parking around. Commanding views or Swansea bay. Very interesting. Good for families. But, due climbing up, within the castle, not for the very little one. Very recommended.
  • 48. Forty Eight years I have lived in Swansea, and 6 days ago it was really sunny so we went to mumbles castle. I honestly can't get over the sheer scale of the castle hiding in the small town of mumbles. Mumbles has always been amazing but now it's spectacular. Massive grounds for picnics, amazing views and a real feel of the castle. You can really have a glimpse back in time. I highly recommend it but parking is a nightmare. £3.50 adult I'm not sure on kids. Volunteers help run the castle called "friends of the castle" and a lovely young lady who works for swansea tourism is really helpful and pleasant.
  • One of the most accessible, interesting castles I've been to. Walk all around and inside: tunnels, ancient chapels with glass refitted walkways, and pretty well preserved. Absolutely brilliant value in our opinion!
  • Loads of history, lots of passageways and rooms to explore, and has the added bonus of historical reenactments and displays created by enthusiastic volunteers.
  • Lovely place. Views are truly spectacular and breathtaking. We had a great time with family and friends.
