About
One of the most magnificent of Britain's castles is the "birth place of the Tudor Dynasty." You can climb the 80ft Great Keep, descend into a pre-historic cave and look down into a prisoner in a medieval dungeon. There is also a cafe and gift shop. During school holidays there are falconry displays, historic re-enactments and family entertainment. The main exhibition rooms display models and weaponry as well as telling the story of the history of the castle. You can also visit the room that King Henry VII the founder of the Tudor Dynasty was born.

Fascinating ancient castle. Tour guide, David, was so interesting and knowledgeable. In a day we hadn't seen all of it, we will come back for another visit.

Best part was the tour. We learnt so much. Kids enjoyed the tour and are still talking about it. There are so many places to see although it doesn't seem there would be. We were shocked that we spent 3 hours easily. Well worth the trip. Looking forward to the future developments as the changes from the first time we saw it has been significant. Much blessings to all your team.

Really enjoyed our trip to Pembroke castle (despite the rain). Loved walking around the castle walls, and in the narrow passageways. The cavern was absolutely awesome. The knowledge that cave dwellers were there at some point was super cool. We joined the free tour with Howard. We couldn’t stay for the whole tour but what we learnt about the castle and its history was great. He has so much knowledge. We got some lunch to take away from the cafe and was super impressed by the gluten free options. I had a cheese ploughman’s with a gluten free roll and it was delicious. Served with salad, potato salad, coleslaw, two cheeses, apple, pickled onions and chutney. There was nothing left. At under £10 for a ticket to the castle, it is well worth a visit.

Fabulous visit to Pembroke castle. We went on the free guided tour with tour guide Gareth who was excellent and gave a riveting talk on the castles history which gave us a real insight into how it came to be built. We ate in the cafe which was good value and staffed by very friendly ladies and visited the castle shop where again the staff were lovely. The weather was vey cold but we were still there for 3 hours, on a hot sunny day we could happily of spent the entire day there.

A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting visit. The castle was impressive in itself but it was brought to life by our tour guide, Howard. His extensive knowledge and enthusiasm opened our eyes not only to how the castle developed over the centuries, but also how important it and its various inhabitants were and how they impacted the course of our history.

A great place to visit. This is not a ruin and there is plenty to see of this impressive castle. The free guided tours are excellent, our guide (David) was very knowledgable and put the information over very well.
Nice cafe, small shop, plenty to see under cover of the weather is not great.
This is a dog friendly site.

Well worth the modest entrance fee.
