The trail will be created to be as accessible as possible within the context of the natural site of Margam Country Park and Gardens. All of the route is outside and not under cover. The route is predominantly across paths, however please note some paths are loose bark/chippings, which may be tricky to traverse in adverse weather. The route follows the gardens as they ascend up to the Castle and descend back down. Whilst, most of the route is along flat sections/moderate slopes, there are a couple of sections which proceed up and down a steep section of the Castle’s Garden paths.
One part of the route (after the digital animation and just at the start of the descent back down) will lead visitors down 3 sections of steps. An alternative route around this section for wheelchair users will be clearly marked and stewards will be there to help guide you through to the alternative route. Your alternative route will then lead back to the bottom of the steps, so you can enjoy the remainder of the trail. Please feel free to ask for our help on the day.
Accessible toilets are situated at the Visitor Centre courtyard (approximately 0.7 miles into the trail) and also at the Car Park
If extreme weather conditions mean that the trail is not fully accessible for people using wheeled mobility aids (bearing in mind the general limitations as set out above), consideration will be made on a case by case basis to allow tickets to be transferred to an alternative date when the ground conditions are more suitable.
Please note that Waterfall Bridge is wide enough to fit a standard wheelchair (and/or standard single pram). If your wheelchair is larger than standard, please contact us so that we can advise further as to suitability.
