Where is Margam Park...
On the South Wales coast, three miles east of Port Talbot
One mile away lies Margam and the giant Corus steelworks
Much of the land adjoining the park is farmland/woodland with a large housing development at Margam village
The park, underlain by sandstone, grit and shale of the coal measures lies on acid soils at the southern edge of the South Wales coalfield, where the escarpment of Craig Y Hodge descends to the coastal plain, much of the parks upland is barren moorland which contrast with the woodlands, grasslands and lakes of the southern park.
How do we get there...
Access to the park is via the A48 at the main Orangery gardens and Showground entrances, with junction 38 of the M4 motorway only 500 metres from the main entrance. All trafic using this costal route must pass the park which is in an ideal position for visitors to access its attractions.
