Loughor Castle

This small park, less than a hectare in size, features the stone remains of Loughor Castle.

Its position was strategically chosen in the 13th/14th Century to overlook the lowest fordable part of the River Loughor and major communication route that crossed South Wales.

The site of Loughor Castle was previously the site of an earthen ringwork castle constructed at the high point of the Roman fort of Leucarum. Whilst the castle is on a small hill, it is difficult to spot as it is now surrounded by houses and situated near the junction of the A4240 (Castle Street) and the A484. The castle is close to Parc Williams in Loughor.


  • Shops, pubs and restaurants very close (within walking distance) in Loughor.
