Oystermouth Castle

Oystermouth Castle (Castell Ystumllwynarth) is one of 600 castles in Wales, though of those 600, there are few Welsh castles with a better view than Oystermouth Castle. The castle, high on the hill in the charming fishing village of Mumbles, looks out onto Swansea Bay. Mumbles quaint streets with colourful cottages as well as two gorgeous beaches. The beaches at Langland and Caswell are connected by the Wales Coast Path, along which you will find stunning views.

Oystermouth Castle is on a forty-foot high (12-metre), limestone ridge. The Norman, castle’s keep and lock at the castle date back to the 12th century. Like Pennard Castle, Oystermouth Castle was owned by the first Earl of Warwick.

See the City and County of Swansea website for up-to-date information on Oystermouth opening times and upcoming events at the castle.
