There's probably no better place to spend Halloween than the haunted castle on the hill, in search of the famous White Lady said to stalk the vaults and ancient corridors of the Castle.

Normally Oystermouth Castle closes at the end of September but due to its popularity, it'll be open every weekend during October, culminating in the spooky goings-on on at the end of the month.

Robert Francis-Davies, Cabinet Member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: "Oystermouth Castle is one of our most popular historic attractions and it's the perfect place for a Halloween adventure, thanks to its history dating back 800 years.

"Visitors can come dressed-up as their favourite horror characters and navigate their way through the 12th century vaults and ancient corridors. It should be lots of fun and it's a great opportunity for people to experience the Castle at night."

Three time slots are available on both 30 and 31 October and the event is recommended for ages 9+ (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
