The Castle

The Grade I listed 19th Century Tudor Gothic Mansion, built in 1830–40 is as a mansion of exceptional quality.

The Castle has some spectacular features. It was designed by the architect Thomas Hopper for Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot.

The main entrance hall and staircase hall are open daily.

 

The Gardens

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

The historic fern-leaved beech (winner of the Wales Tree of the Year in 2020) envelopes the remains of one of the first Cistercian abbeys established in Wales. With an impressive canopy, the tree has provided shelter to visitors for many years - from Victorian tea parties taking place under its sweeping boughs to a favourite summer picnic spot for present day visitors.
