Pembroke Castle is the birthplace of Henry VII. His forces defeated King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field during the War of the Roses and went on to become the first monarch of the House of Tudor.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the town of Pembroke, this is Pembrokeshire’s most complete and impressive castle. Within the halls and towers you’ll find an exhibition detailing the history of Pembroke Castle, from its beginnings as a hill fort to the grand structure it is today.
The huge courtyard is used year-round for events such as craft fairs and concerts and there’s a small café inside for food and refreshments.
If you’re only planning to visit one of the local castles, we’d certainly recommend Pembroke.
