We walked to the castle from the car park below, looked around the outside and wandered in. The entrance fee was £6 per adult and $£ per child. There is actually a family living in the castle in private quarters, so a small part is off limits, but the main area, battlements, and wall walks are available. There is also... More

So glad we made the effort to come here. It is a lovely almost ruined castle although they have made it into a superb venue for a wedding. On a sunny day you can see down to the sea from the battlements and sitting in the garden with a coffee was heaven....wished I lived here!

We spent nearly two hours walking around the inside of the castle climbing up the towers open to the public and just enjoying the lovely garden and grounds. The visit was topped off with an ice cream each from the castle café and shop

Love the history, being the birthplace of Gerald of Wales. Best part is the views from the towers, mind the steep steps. There are some exhibits and info boards, though they need better lighting and sprucing up. Staff in cafe lovely. Not bad.

Visited on a grey murky rainy day. Very little information available around the castle, they obviously want you to buy the guide for £3. Café very small and so is its outdoor covered area. There is plenty of unsheltered seating around the castle, not much good in the rain.

So pleased to find somewhere dog-friendly! Hoorah to you. I don't expect to be able to take the dog up the ramparts, but why can't more places allow the dog in the grounds while the husband and I take turns at viewing the buildings? Manorbier might not be the most expansive castle but combined with the little cafe and admiring... More
