Directions By road From the South-East and South-West: the M4 motorway runs directly to Margam from London and from Heathrow (the M25/M24 from Gatwick Airport);
the M5/M4 from the West Country;
and the M6/M5/M50/M4 from the Midlands and the North;
the M4 from West Wales.
Exit the M4 Junction 38 and follow the Brown Tourist Board signs to Margam Park. The park entrance will be reached, on the left, very soon after leaving the motorway. The entrance has welcoming curved stone walls and open gates, which are set a little back from the pavement. You pass a field of rare cattle on your right, and the cricket gound as you make the gentle descent towards to the large wooden entrance lodge and car parks.
(Note avoid the turning towards "Margam Stones", which is about 200 yds before the entrance to "Margam Park", which is the one you need)
For directions by Bus, Coach, Train or Air see the Margam Park Travel Information Page. Please note that the information, given by the Margam Park authorities, is updated regularly, and after an update this link may not work until I realise what has happened. If the link does not work, then you can find the information by going to the Margam Park website (www.margamcountrypark.co.uk ) and looking for their current "Visitor Information" page.
Accessibility Access to the park and the buildings we use for the show is quite good, with parking close to the halls. (You may need to show the staff at the entrance gate your blue badge.) The outside paths that are essential for use of the show venues are wide smooth and well maintained, with a surface similar to tarmac. (Some of the garden and forest paths have a rolled hardcore surface which is affected by tree roots etc. Much of the park is level but there is a long steep slope between the Orangery and the Mansion, though this need not be a problem when visiting the show, at either venue.
If you wish to be more adventurous the Park authorities offer an Electric buggy hire scheme.
The Orangery has level entrances a flat floor and wide doorways.
The floor is made of large, well maintained stone tiles (with a smooth surface which some may find slippery) and well maintained carpets. Carpet edges have well maintained nosings, and should not normally present a hazard.
With large windows the building is quite well supplied with natural light. Half of the exhibition space has excellent artificial light, while half is not quite as good. Exhibitors are able to provide additional light for their stands.
The main toilets are easily accessible from the exhibition hall and quite spacious. There is also a disabled / baby changing toilet,
The Cafe is in the main hall, and should not pose a problem for anyone using the stands.
The Exhibition is laid out on both sides of a long straight passage, with stands facing each other. There are no side passages except for the very biggest stands. All passages are wide enough for standard wheelchairs.
Accessibility to individual stands is the responsibility of the exhibitor, who should be there to help you. If not, ask someone on a neighbouring stand. Most exhibitors would be delighted to offer whatever help they can.
Mansion The entrance is level, with a stone floor similar to the Orangery and the doors are wide.
The building is used as a film set and conditions inside are dependent on the staging in use. However generally accessibility is adequate for most people. All rooms are on the same floor but there are changes in levels. Good ramps are usually provided. The exhibition is laid out in 4 rooms some of which have wooden floors. The rooms are connected so that you can go on a circular tour of the exhibition without having to do very much double tracking. Passages are if anything wider then in the Orangery. Lighting is very different in the different rooms, but Exhibitors are able to provide additional light where needed.
Good toilets are inside the back of the building, with indoor access, though you may need a guide to find them. Catering in the exhibition is minimal, though the old Margam Park Visitor Centre restaurant is in an adjacent courtyard, and may be open during the show.

In May 2012 the EU Cookies Directive comes into force in the UK. This is a somewhat complex piece of legislation as XXStatcounter XXexplains in a XXdocument which you can see hereXX.
