(hover over photo to pause slideshow)

Dinefwr Castle and Newton House - Llandeilo

Newton HouseThe 'hands-on' Newton House gives visitors an atmospheric circa 1912 experience. Exhibitions onthe first floor tell Dinefwr's story and inspire visitors to explore the castle and park.



Pembroke Castle

Pembroke Castle

Idyllically set on the banks of the river estuary, this mighty fortress is largely intact, and its endless passages, tunnels and stairways are great fun to explore, plus there are super exhibitions, which tell the tale of its medieval life. Once the seat of a succession of major barons who played leading roles in shaping Britain's history, this historic showpiece is the birthplace of Henry Tudor, father to the infamous Henry VIII and grandfather of Elizabeth I.


Carreg Cennen Castle - Near Llandeilo

Carreg Cennen Castle

In Welsh, Castell Carreg Cennen means, "castle on the rock," which is appropriate considering its roost on a limestone cliff. The surrounding countryside is home to more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world, but - despite being the only one in ruins - Carreg Cennen is considered the finest for its view of the rolling green fields and moorland.


Picton Castle & Gardens - Near Rhos, Haverfordwest

Manorbier - A fairytale castle, perfectly secluded little bay, historical, stony streets and welcoming tea room and pub, all cuddled by rich, leafy landscapes - what more could you ask for? What Manorbier lacks in size is makes up for with oodles of charm.
