Margam Park is a great place for the whole family and.the attractions include Go Ape, a castle, wonderful gardens around the orangery (great for exhibitions & weddings), a church and the main house, a discovery centre, go karts, a cafe, 2 children play areas, ponds and lakes, farm animals, a mini train and fairytale land.

There are lots of green areas to play games and to enjoy a picnic, as well as lots of walks and areas to cycle. The park has alot of wildlife including squirrels, foxes, badgers, rabbits and a herd of deer. There are also great views over the Brecon Beacons and the Bristol channel. Parking costs £6.60 to park all day. The staff at the park are very approachable and knowledgeable

Visited on the 18th December which was a cold clear night, we had our children and grandchildren with us,the paths were clear and easy to walk around ,even the five year olds had no problem. The lights are good and the Fairies were probably the grandchilrens favourite. On the down side £2.50 for a single marshmallow was expensive especially when we were a party of eleven. Parking was well organised and easy, well worth a visit.

Visited Luminate for the first time having been to a similar experience in Berlin 2 years ago. Whilst parts of the trail were pretty it wasn’t a patch on other similar experiences we’ve visited. There were no Christmas themes, music or Christmas lights. Whilst pretty It could have been on at any time of the year rather than a Christmas experience. I think the organisers need to visit other similar light trails such as those abroad to get some ideas. Plus a nightmare to walk round if disabled! Quite disappointed.

First time for myself at the Luminate show and it was fantastic. Great for all ages, the trail keeps young children engaged throughout. The fairy display is brilliant. Plenty of stalls for festive food which I wish I'd known prior to attending. Great evening out.

Saturday Day - When my friend and I arrived during the daytime, there was a long list of things which were closed. However, this isn't the fault of the staff. A lot of things had been broken/affected by the recent storm and they were trying to piece it all back together. So while we were disappointed, it was nobody's fault. We still had a lovely, albeit shorter, walk around the park.

Sunday Evening - We had booked to visit the Luminate light trail and were glad to see that everything had been suitably reset. It was a wonderful experience and the staggered entry times meant that it wasn't too crowded. Plenty of food and drink to choose from although the price of a basic hotdog was rather steep. Still, a lot of effort had gone into the display and there was no need to rush around. Once inside we could take as long as we wanted. Certainly worth the entrance fee.

Luminate live at Margam is a magical amazing event would recommend to all. The staff are super helpful during our visit last Friday my young son fell and the steward who first attended put us at ease and went the extra mile to look after us, the first aid team were also excellent thank you for ensuring we were all well and safe xx

Absolutely love Margam Park. Lovely views to walk around the gardens and see the grounds. A great park from for the kids with an actual castle for them to play in and lots of different animals for them to see a great day out.

The park land and scenery are well worth seeing but the various walks are very poorly marked. We visited in October where most of the facilities and attractions were closed yet the car park charge is the same as in high season!
Unfortunately the amount of litter dropped by visitors was atrocious. A more effective litter clearing system should be put in place.

We visited the Abbey years ago but somehow missed the huge park! It is lovely especially on a nice weather day. Lots of marked paths, the orangery is pretty and some ruins around. The Castle looks spectacular from the outside, though currently neither are open for visitors. Blame lockdown.

There are carving and statues along the paths that are quite interesting and paths signposted up the hill that form part of the Cistercian Path.
Lots of grassy areas for picnics, dogs and kids to run.
So mainly for walking or strolling but not too strenuous. Could happily spend a few hour here.
Entry is free but is £6.60 to park and its Council run with proceeds to the upkeep. So much better value than in England!
There is a very clever dog wash and drying station (self service) to clean any muddy puppies before returning to the car.
