We were staying in Haverfordwest and thought we would visit the castle. It was a fair walk up a steep hill and lots of steps from the car park. When we arrived the museum was closed, but we were still able to walk around the...More

The ruins of this castle could be improved with information which didn’t seem to be accessible. It didn’t seem worth the effort in visiting unless you are particularly interested.

Haverfordwest Castle is little more than an empty shell. There are no external info boards. Small museum was closed when we visited in early April. Views aren't much to shout about either.

With such a long and colourful history it’s a pity the castle isn’t promoted better. There is an information leaflet available from the museum but sadly the museum closes for Autumn/Winter this isn’t much use if you visit during those months. The site could benefit...More

Classic Welsh Castle ruins but still with lots of nooks and crannies. Good parking by museum and safe for kids to run about unfettered. Ideal for a picnic

Museum was closed. Castle is sparse. Great views of Mambo Italian though. I think the car park was free - not sure though.

This castle is easy to access off the high street on foot. The views would have been better on a less rainy day, but there were some views of the town. The lady in the little museum was very helpful, even though I didn't have...More
