This is one of the most picturesque castle you are ever likely to come across. With its ivy covered walls attractive gardens and instead of a cobbled courtyard a nicely laid out lawn, a very nice place to spend a warm sunny day. Having said all that its hard to imagine it was a once a very formidable fortress. It... More

We were staying nearby & discovered the was a Christmas market being held here so went for a look. The market had a Moroccan theme which we though a bit unusual, but it was fun with a few stalls in the outside & more inside, the birds of prey stall was very popular with some outstanding examples. Entry was reasonable... More

The loin, witch and wardrobe was my main reason for wanting to visit and a rather grey day made us go. Reasonable entry fee and great cafe made the experience, along with the vast amount to see, so many rooms with very good information regarding the castles history, 10/10

This castle is very pretty from the outside. Make sure you check the opening times, as we arrived to late to actually walk the castle grounds. Not a whole day activity but a pretty site to behold.

Not a lot to see or do in Manorbier Castle and at £5 per head for an adult, just not worth the money

A visit to the castle is well worth the time. Interesting sound effects and plenty of places for the children to explore. When you're in Manorbier don't forget to walk up to the ancient cromlech on the hillside too.

This is a lovely place to visit close to the beach in Manorbier near Tenby in Wales . The castle ruins are well maintained and there is a lot to see. There are little places to explore throughout the castle walls. The views from the towers are spectacular even though it was very windy in October 2014. The beach at... More

we have visited Manorbier a few times but never the castle so we decided to have a look , the little tea room was good and the castle itself okay the only negative it is only for an hour Max so is it a bit expensive , if with youngsters maybe spend longer.

We didn't pay to get into the castle, we just went to the tearoom and sat outside within the walls of the castle. Appeared over priced initially but the portions are good. Friendly staff.
