This is a spacious castle with a few rooms to go into and a couple of towers to climb. There are some interesting displays with information provided to help you imagine life in the castle in the past.

A fortified manor house was engaged in two assaults: the first, in 1327, when Richard de Barri stormed Manorbier to claim what was rightfully his, and, 1645 during the English Civil War, when the castle was seized by Cromwell's Roundheads. After this the castle was left to ruin.

For the attraction it is ver overpriced £5.50 per adult! Although the grounds and scenes are nice I didn't think it was £15s worth !

Manorbier Castle is well worth the visit especially coming off the Pembrokeshire Coast Path walk. You can a great view and size of the castle coming in from the Coast Path.
