Who are we?

Set up in 1989, the Friends of Oystermouth Castle are a voluntary group of people, who look after the day to day running of the castle during the open season.

The castle has recently undergone multi-million pound conservation work and these developments have made involvement with the castle more exciting that it has ever been.

Making a difference
