This was our first deer sighting up close at Margam Park. Its was an amazing family day out. Visiting the village park, Margam farm animals & to top it off we were within 100m of seeing red stag deers. Truly amazing experience! Highly recommend taking family for day out at this wonderful park!

Beautiful surroundings with plenty to do for all age groups, be it a walk through the impressive gardens, around the orangery and house or through the woodland trails. There are play areas for the young, wildlife and even a farmyard for children to view the animals. If you are lucky, you will get to see the deer roaming free. All... More

Disappointed to say the least. You cannot walk around the house. Only the bottom of staircase. Perhaps they should tell you that before charging £4.90 parking car that house is restricted.

Very large park, need a lot of time to get around. There's a little train for the kids to go on and obviously you have go ape there too, which isn't too expensive for an amazing day out. A bad thing is, the car park price is rather too high for a park.

Margam park has something for everyone. A beautiful estate just off the M4 near Port Talbot in South Wales, Margam has just been designated a People's Choice Park and it is well deserved. Not just a place for walking, although you will find a wide variety of walks and paths available here, Margam has a magnificent castle, a stunning orangery,... More

We live such a short distance away but it took us a visit from a friend from Devon to actually get around to spending any serious time in the Park. How better could we have spent a few hours on a sunny Autumn afternoon. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and dotted with attractions throughout the ages including the... More

We always call in to Margam on the way to our hotel - lovely gardens and a good chance to stretch your legs. £4 to park the car is the only cost and you can easily spend the best part of a day there. This time we bumped into Peter from the "Friends of Margam Park" who was an absolute... More

Margam Park has a variety of things in the grounds, a miniature railway, the house (where open) a small courtyard to relax in, a park to wander in, gardens to see and the abbey ruins. For a fee there is also the Go Ape site. As such this is often a good place to turn up to do a few... More
