  • This castle doesn't look very big from the road, and indeed, compared to many other castles in the UK it isn't, but as you walk in it seems to extend. It is unlike most castles I've been to. The rooms...  more »

  • An atmospheric castle with lots of history to read. Great views if you manage to climb the stairs. Not suitable for disabled people or very young children but for school children it’s a great learning...  more »

  • A huge and well preserved fortress castle. Well worth visiting. Extra things to see such as a room with real armour and model of the castle, some media/history boards and full access to some of the high parts of the castle. Look out for when the dragon is on the grounds- the kids love it and great for pics!
  • Good place to explore, some areas were being worked on so we couldn't get to all (usually) accessable areas. Dogs welcome but must stay on ground level as steps are rough and some very steep. Staff in the shop were welcoming and friendly.
  • This castle is beautiful with breathtaking views over to Carmarthen Bay. It is possible to visualise how it must have looked and sounded over the centuries.
  • Excellent day out - we went here when they were hosting a Medieval Fair. Staff were friendly and helpful, the castle itself was amazing, there was plenty of access to dungeons, towers and rooms in the castle, amazing views from the top. A wonderful place to visit.
  • Great place. Bigger than originally thought and very complete for its age and history. Can also go to top of one tower which offers great views.
