Beautiful view from the tower well kept grounds. Can be viewed in 1/2 your but there is lots to do in the surrounding area.

I really loved this little castle, steeped in history with a little quiz ideal for our 5 yr old to keep her interested despite the rain. Friendly staff in gift shop. Nice memories. Steep steps to tower consistent with old ruins.

A good place to visit for those who like History; Famous Places/People; sea views, and wildlife. (I was able to add to my yearly bird count!)

A little disappointing when we visited. Not much of a castle left. Lovely walk around Laugharne. Sandy walks to lovely eateries.
