This is quite a low key monument but is best visited when it is quiet as then it exudes atmosphere. The climb up the stairway is the best part but the windows also are very interesting.

A lovely lady welcomed us in and found a treasure hunt for the kids. The hunt helped us to learn more about the castle as there are limited information boards. The castle is ruined so good on a warm sunny day for the kids to run about and scramble up steps etc not probably so good if it's wet. The... More

Not bad as far as castles go, but shouldn't be used as the whole reason to visit Laugharne. Very well kept but I think it would help to have a bit more information dotted about the grounds and rooms.

We stumbled across this place by accident when looking for somewhere to take the kids on a cloudy afternoon as we were visiting the area. The staff were lovely really welcoming especially to the children- lots of little things to do for the kids - a questionnaire to complete for a prize. A sandpit - lots of towers to climb... More

Laugharne castle is a wonderful experience. The Outer walls are fairly well preserved and also the tower. The climb up the narrow stairs to the top of the tower is scary but so worth it.. The view across the estuary, made so well known, by Dylan Thomas, are so charismatic and well worth the visit all by itself. If you... More

The castle is larger than I remember, and has stunning views. You can also visit places associated with Dylan Thomas, and the village itself is 'up and coming' with some good pubs.

Really superb location overlooking the river, steeped in history. Fully worth the climb from the National Trust property and car park, which was also completely worth a visit. In fact, it was so beautiful and tranquil, we went back three times on this one visit.
