My hometown's castle!

It's always a pretty walk in the surrounding area, and I remember really enjoying the interior of the castle as a child.

It's a lovely picturesque place to visit. Definitely one for the walkers. Unfortunately the castle was closed for the season when we visited on 7 th November. Nonetheless we had a lovely walk around the castle and village (so much more to walk) which is also home to Brown's Hotel where Dylan Thomas frequented and other places he lived and... More

Laugharne castle may be a ruin but it is still well worth a visit. The ruins still retain a lot of atmosphere and are is set in beautiful surroundings with stunning views over the estuary. Pleasant walks too!

The views alone are worth a visit to this ruined castle which is still in tact enough to get a sense of the grandeur of days gone by. Set in a very quaint little village, I can recommend a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare and have an appreciation of both history and vistas.

This is true Dylan Thomas territory, but leaving that aisde, the trip is wrth it for the castle alone.. a well-preserved ruin (if thats nnot a contardiction) with fabulous views over the bay and a beautifully kept and planted garden.

Steep walk up to the castle ,but worth it. Only ruins left but a lovely spot with great views over the countryside and estuary. You can walk to village or beach from bottom of castle. It has informative plaques around for parts of the ruins. Free parking and a very nice walk up to the castle. Cafe and beach cafe... More

Free parking (but be gone by 6pm or the tide can come right into the car park!). Thought we were going to walk around the castle but instead we walked AROUND it - beautiful hilly coastal walk with our dog. Lovely morning.

A ruin of a castle with one tower in tact enough to climb to the top for fabulous views over the bay. A bit of information in the entrance building then some more displayed in the tower. Only £3.20 to enter.

The castle is very ruined and hard to make out any general plan as castle was gentrified in Elizabethan times and then attacked in the civil war.The elizebethan house must have been very impressive with massive fireplace and large windows overlooking the estuary. The best part was the gazebo summerhouse in the corner overlooking the harbour where Dylan Thomas is... More
