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.

Accessible by Public Transport: 5 miles from Swansea station
