We visited Laugharne because we wanted to visit The Boathouse and follow the Dylan Thomas connection, however, with the free parking adjacent to the castle it was an obvious choice to visit the castle as well. In a defensive position overlooking the Taf estuary, there has been a castle here since the Norman times. Much of the castle is now... More

There are lovely views up and down the river estuary. The history of the castle was interesting. The gardens are lovely. A place that is worth visiting and is dog friendly.

We didn't go into the castle but I have been inside in previous visits due to the price of over £4 per adult. It's such a beautiful place though , if your not on a tight budget it's well worth a visit

I really like the connection with the castle and it's influence on Dylan Thomas. It's conveniently situated in the centre of Laugharne and fired my eight year old's imagination.

We were driving from Llangsteffan to Tenby which is a fabulous journey, every corner gives you a great new view. We stopped at Laugharne and sat on the grass by the stream eating ice cream in the sunshine - very peaceful and relaxing. Good car parks and very clean public toilets.

Unexpected location we stumbled across, very pretty and very peaceful. We didn't have any expectation just drove along the road and drove into the free car park.

Nice little castle ruins. There's a great little hut/house on the walls where the great British poet spent time when in Laugharne. There is a small entrance fee but it's worth a visit if your in the area and have an hour or so to kill

What with the castle and the Boat House you could not visit a more beautiful place to visit on a Summers Day . We visited with friends and also visited the simple grave of Dylan Thomas.

Visited whilst staying in area - great kids trail, our 6 year old loved it! There is a lovely walk from the castle to Dylan Thomas's boathouse and some great coffee places/pubs - something here for everyone.
