This is a little 5×7″ Sketch I have done in Graphite Watercolor Pencil (by Derwent, of course 🙂  )

You can have a great day out at Margam Country Park, there is so much to do and see.

There is Margam Castle, and Margam Abbey, along with a lake and wildlife.

Here are some really great images of Margam Castle on Google Images.

If you want to know how we found out about Margam Castle…. we used to watch Most Haunted, a paranormal show in the UK. And we decided to take a trip to see what it was all about, because we loved the spooky Gothic look of Margam Castle.

If you would like to participate in a Margam Castle Ghosthunt, here is one that is coming up, the 26th October, so book now!

I found this complete video on YouTube of when Most Haunted went to Margam Castle! Enjoy viewing! 🙂

Here are some extra videos about Margam….from Most Haunted Extra…

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

When you walk up towards the castle (on the long pathway), you get a sense of foreboding, because it looks like a Gothic castle that Dracula lives in.

I hope you can sleep after that experience! Now get some rest, because tomorrow we head West, and we have about 1 1/2 hour journey. Maybe we will stop for a cappuccino on the way 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you have any comments, please feel free to comment or ask questions (I will do my best to answer).


Thanks for visiting, see you tomorrow!

  1. Thank you Frances! I hope you enjoyed the post, and the videos! We visited this castle because of the show, and it lived up to our expectations 🙂 Did you get to watch the videos?


  2. What a magnificent castle! Great sketch! I started watching the video, but when the lady started screaming, I couldn’t help but think someone other than a ghost was scaring her…It was hard to tell what was going on. 😉

    I had no idea there were castles like this in Wales. Beautiful!


  3. Thanks very much! We used to watch Most Haunted all the time and would go to some of the haunted places they had on the show 🙂 there are loads of castles in Wales 🙂
