  • Loved the walk in the castle. Shame its not being restored. It took people 145 years to built it and now only walls left. It should be considered to be restored. Would be a lot more interesting to visit and learn about the history
  • Nice little gift shop in the entranceway. The castle is fascinating especially if you delve into its history and the Dylan Thomas links. I thought more could be done with the gardens although the formal box hedging I thought was pretty good. Enjoyable visit and I would think most would enjoy it
  • Had a lovely couple of hours there. We went on a day they had medieval people there and had a lovely time making a shield, trying on armour, having a go at archery and watching them fight. Castle was nice, climbed to the top and ran around the grounds.
  • An Excellent place to visit. Lots of stunning places to have a walk around, with awesome views - no matter what the weather.
  • Enjoyable 3 hours. Grounds are pleasant with magnificent views from the turrets off the town and coast line. Dylan Thomas must have found much inspiration.
