Strategically placed between the coast near Port Talbot and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons, the castle is set in grounds open to the public. With a human history of occupation on the grounds dating back 4000 years, the castle itself is fairly new being built in the 19th century. That doesn’t stop it from having its own ghosts and spooky events.
The most famous ghost is that of the once grounds-keeper Robert Scott, who’s ghostly form can be seen on the castle’s main staircase. It’s also thought he’s responsible for some poltergeist like activity around the building, and it’s said that attempts to contact him can lead to stones be thrown! People have also claimed to have heard the voices of Victorian children echoing around the corridors and rooms of the castle, and they too have been blamed for strange activity at the castle.
This is coupled with tales of ghostly figures around the grounds, and night staff being followed by footsteps around the place at night alongside voices heard around the building. Given its relatively new build, Margam Castle is certainly full of timeless mystery, and you can visit it as it’s open all year round.
