Pembroke Castle is 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.

Pembroke Castle has a long and fascinating history, dating from 1093; notably, Henry Tudor (Harri Tudur), who became Henry VII and inaugurated the Tudor line of monarchs, was born there in 1457. He was father to the infamous Henry VIII and grandfather of Elizabeth I. Pembroke is also noteworthy as the only castle in Britain to be built over a natural cavern: a large cave known as the Wogan.

Views from the top are tremendous and the castle’s natural defensive position on a rocky promontory overlooking Milford Haven is immediately apparent.

Visitors will find an exhibition room telling the fascinating history of the castle and lots of exciting events are held during the year such as re-enactments, falconry and circus displays. The castle and a well stocked gift shop are open all year.

The Castle and Exhibition Rooms are open daily all year round.
