“Well maintained ruins and stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had a great hour walking around the ruins and grounds of Laugharne Castle. The views from the top of the tower across the town and estuary are breathtaking.

“Castle-tastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Laugharne Castle is a great visit. The castle has been preserved to allow visitors to wander around the ruins as well as to climb inside, up the steep steps and take in the view from the top of the tower. The view is quite stunning, across the estuary and out to sea and also the village in which it's situated. For those with walking challenges, the steps are quite tricky with varying heights and depths of steps and they are not all well lit. The gardens are beautifully maintained and there are benches to sit and enjoy. Definately worth a visit!

“Very pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Beautiful surroundings and views with well manicured grounds. Not the most dramatic castle in south Wales but well worth a visit.

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I've visited many times over the years and still see something different each time. The views are stunning and so different depending on the tide and weather. Well worth a visit if you're in the area

“Pretty Castle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We visited the castle with our three boys (7,5,3), Granny and Auntie.
I found the entry fee a little steep for our group as we were only in there for about an hour.
It is a beautiful castle and the boys loved running around and exploring but there wasn't much to hold their interest for more than an hour or so.
It really is a beautiful setting with stunning views from the top. Definitely a place where grown-ups could amble around and sit and relax for a few hours.
The staff in the gift shop were delightful (as we found generally in Wales) and the toilet facilities were good.
We also walked round the base of the castle and the boys played in the little stream which was a big hit.
We combined this visit with a lovely fish and chip lunch by the sea and a trip to The Tin Shed in Laugharne and had a really great
day out.
Definitely worth a visit.
