The Friends are pleased to welcome back the Kaya Festival to the park again this year, which promises to be bigger than ever!
Our experienced volunteers will be holding historical Celtic walks to sites in and around the park, such as the intriguing Iron Age hill fort once occupied by the Silures, an impressive Iron Age tribe.
This particular walk boasts moving views of the entire Swansea Bay and dramatic scenes of the Tudor, Gothic castle below, among a beautiful variety of flora and fauna.
So if you are looking for a heart-stopping,hair-raising, spine-tingling , historical walk to complement your stay with us at Margam, then call into the friends room located within the castle courtyard where we will be available to help.
Note: Walks will run throughout the Kaya weekend. There are no set times for walks but these will run regularly through the day. Please wear sensible clothing and footwear. Suitable for all ages. Walks will last approximately one hour. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us directly at Margam, via our website or Facebook page.

Are you interested in the history of the castle, have you ever wondered what works of art were present in the castle during its glory years, if so why not call into our courtyard room where we now have a portfollo of some of the works of art you would have found there, one of our volunteers is continuing to source further images through his research, so why not call in to see us and view the photographs that show the glory that used to be.....there could even be a tour in it for you.
A big thank you to one of our volunteers who stepped in last minute to take a group of excited visitors around the castle. If you would like to know more about the castle and its intriguing history, please come and see us at the friends room, situated in the castle courtyard.
