Pembroke Castle

Attractions


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. Spend a day, and picnic in the beautifully kept grounds or from St. Anne's Bastion, enjoy views along the estuary while partaking of refreshments from the Cafe bar. Visit the Brass Rubbing Centre and quickly and easily, make an attractive souvenir. Complete your visit with a walk around the medieval town walls and millpond, and from the opposite bank of the river, view the castle in all its splendor, surrounded by this peaceful stretch of water.

Review

Standing guard over the town of Pembroke for at least 900 years is this mighty fortress of a castle. Even though it didn't start its life as magnificent as it is today, the castle has played an integral part in the town's life for centuries past. From April through to the end of September the castle plays host to such events as medieval re-enactments, outdoor theatre performances, and hawking displays you won't have time to get bored. Open all year round the castle is a great place to learn, discover, and explore what life would have been like within these majestic walls. With the castle only being closed 3 days a year it's great to visit at any time. With a café style restaurant it's an ideal location to stay for lunch, or the grounds within the castle is also a great location for a picnic.
