The Castle

This 19th Century Tudor Gothic Mansion was designed by the architect Thomas Hopper for Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot.
The house was built in 1830 – 40 at a cost of £50,000 using sandstone from nearby Pyle quarry. Listed Grade I as a mansion of exceptional quality, the Castle has some spectacular features such as the vast staircase hall and octagonal tower.

The Entrance Hallway and Staircase Hall is open to the public (although with limited views of the main staircase as ongoing repair works are taking place).


The Gardens

Margam Park is a Grade I listed garden, where you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers with both classic and modern planting.

The Gardens at Margam are continuously being developed aiming, over time, to become one of the most interesting gardens in South Wales.

Deer and Wildlife

The famous Margam Deer Herd today roams through approximately 500 acres (200 hectares) of parkland. There are herds of Fallow, Red and the endangered Pere David Deer

Among the more common mammals to be seen are foxes, badgers, hares, grey squirrels, voles and shrews.

Activities for All

From peaceful walks to the thrill of mountain biking, coarse fishing to sitting back and watching the deer - the park provides a wonderful environment for all to enjoy.
