Pembroke Castle

The chief attraction of Pembroke is this ruined, but substantial, Norman castle, rebuilt around 1300. It is reputed to be the birthplace of Henry VII.


During the Civil War, Pembroke Castle was a Parliamentarian stronghold, but the town's military governor switched allegiance to the King. Cromwell's troops laid seige to the castle and and finally sacked it.

The large open space in the centre of Pembroke Castle is just the place for a picnic.

Children will love the eerie dungeon (see picture).

Unlike many Pembrokeshire attractions, Pembroke Castle is open all year round.
