About Pembroke Castle

Pembroke Castle is over 900 years old and was the seat of power in West Wales for centuries.

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.
You can climb to the top of the 80ft Keep for magnificent views across Pembrokeshire, or descend into Wogan Cavern, a naturally formed cave that was once home to Britain's earliest humans.

You can easily spend a day here, bring a picnic, or make the most of the superb meals and refreshments on offer from the Castle Kitchen.

There are free guided tours daily, which are included in the cost of admission.

The Castle Gift Shop and Heraldry Centre offer some unique gifts and souvenirs. 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 glory, surrounded by this peaceful stretch of water.
