Oystermouth Castle re-opens to the public this Saturday (16 July) after undergoing a £1.7m makeover. Live medieval music, falconry and archery displays will form part of the family fun day.

The castle, which sits majestically overlooking Swansea Bay at Mumbles, was established by William De Londres early in the 12th century. Read about the history of this fantastic castle and the development plans on the Wales Online website.

There are features on a range of Welsh castles on the BBC Wales History website.
