Margam was the original site for a cistercian monastery, then being acquired after the dissolution of all monasteries in the UK in 1540 became the family seat of Sir Rice Mansell. It’s now however home to Margam Country Park, and plays host to another one of our Top 100 Attractions ‘Go Ape’. As I walked around the estate I could easily of been walking around the grounds of Hogwarts from the ‘Harry Potter’ films. With Deer walking within yards away from where I stood its easy to see why this park has made it into our Top 100 list. With remains of the abbey still intact it’s no wonder why people like to spend all day here. Entrance into the park is totally free but there is a small car parking fee. But no matter what, a visit around the park for the day is priceless.
