My husband and I and our friend visiting from Prague joined James on Saturday 21 November for the Margam Ghost Walk - we had a thoroughly fabulous time! James is an amazing teller of local history and stories about this historic site. We had a great time and were infected by James's enthusiasm and knowledge of alleged sightings of monks,... More

We went on James's ghost walk at St Fagan's Castle earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it so were really looking forward to his tour at Margam Castle last night. And it didn't disappoint! James is a fantastic, entertaining storyteller and the ghost stories and the tales of local history are equally fascinating. As we were driving home we were... More

This was a fabulous evening, the best so far, particularly wandering around the old mansion, such a shame it isn't being used to its full capacity anymore, amazing place and fabulously frightening in the dark, a must see.

I loved that we had the chance to ask questions and speak up if we felt anything. I loved it and would defiantly... More
