Children's Activity Event


Step back in time at Oystermouth Castle and join re-enactment group Gwerin y Gwyr (People of Gower) for some demonstrations of what life might have been like in mediaeval times at Oystermouth Castle.

Ever wondered what it would have been like to be a knight of the realm? Have a go at trying on different armoury, learning line commands and find out all about weaponry and defence of the age.

The Heritage Metal Detectors Club will also be joining the line-up, showcasing recovered archaeological finds from around the region.

By Bus: From Mumbles, the number 2 bus to Newton goes up Newton Road towards the castle - get off the bus at the stop by the Ostreme Centre and walk up Castle Avenue.

By Car: Follow the A4067 into Mumbles and then turn right up Newton Road at the mini roundabout by the White Rose. The castle is halfway up Newton Road on the right hand side.

There is very limited parking in Castle Avenue, so the best option is to use the pay and display car parks along the sea front.
