How to find Oystermouth Castle

Travel and parking information for Oystermouth Castle.

Oystermouth Castle, Castle Avenue, Mumbles, Swansea SA3 4BA

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.

Oystermouth can get very busy in the summer months. There are three car parks at the bottom of Oystermouth Village (on Mumbles Road), but if these are full you can try one of the Underhill car parks, which are at the top of the village.

To get to Underhill car parks from Mumbles Road, turn up Newton Road when you see the White Rose pub on the corner. Continue up Newton Road past Marks & Spencer (on the left) until you reach a road junction with traffic lights. You will see a school playground on your right and a church on your left.  

  • To find the paying car park, turn left past the church into Langland Road and you will see the car park about 120 yards on the right hand side of the road. The walk to the Castle from here is 5 minutes.
  • To find the free car park, continue straight up Newton Road, with the playing fields on your left and going past the cemetery on your right. At the top of the park, before the houses start, you will see a car parking sign on the left. Turn into the narrow road and you will find the car park amongst the trees. The walk to the Castle from here is 10 minutes.

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

Beach and promenade car parks

By bus

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.
