Red Herring Theatre Group at the Castle. What another fantastic performance by Red Herring. This year they staged 'Allo Allo' and it was wonderful. The actors were superb and their interpretation of that famous TV series very well done. The setting outdoors with the castle walls as a back drop added atmosphere and enjoyment. Hot drinks and snacks were available... More

Staying in Manorbier and our cottage was facing the castle. We were only calling in on the way to the coastal walk, and ended up staying for most of the afternoon! Lots of nooks and crannies hidden in the walls... The old fireplace is still in good condition, as is the castle. The dungeon has a surprise and the large... More

Make no mistake this is a very special place and worth a visit. This Norman Castle is smaller than you think on the inside and in good condition as it was never stormed in battle. Very tranquil. Some will find it expensive for the experience. There was a falconry show on which suited the surroundings and you could see the... More

Little more than a shell but what a pretty shell it is! Manorbier really is a picturesque ruin and if you look carefully, you can still see the remains of the pulleys that operated the draw bridge. (they probably aren't original but hey.) Because Manorbier wasn't blown to pieces, it really is in very good condition and probably worth the... More

There's nothing much wrong with this lovely looking castle. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the sea, but it is overpriced given it's small size and lack of things to see. Pembroke Castle nearby is far more engaging.

A lovely place to visit. The gardens are beautiful and if the weather is kind it's lovely to sit in the garden with a snack from the cafe. There are lots of places for you to investigate, spiral staircases to climb. If you can manage to climb up the tower you are rewarded with fabulous views. It is not a... More

A bit expensive to go in, loved the gardens and the children enjoyed the room with the dressing up costumes, beautiful setting for a castle and worth a visit, would be nice to have more information about the history of the castle

Family visited last week. My 5 year old and 2 year old loved the place. We had a brew in the Tea shop. Great little beach just down the road too. Can easily waste a few hours here and if you combine it with the beach then an entire day
