Carew Castle, Tenby

(650+ reviews on the web)
Castle
The illustrious Careway family built Carew Castle in its strategic location along a lowland river estuary. Take advantage of the unique location and the views from the parapets. Built on a site with over 2,000 years of occupation, researchers have even found Iron Age settlements on the same hill. With over a millennium of history, the castle has experienced many periods of growth and decline. The modern site is now heavily restored, so use the audio guide to bring it to life. Visit the tidal mill, a type of mill which turns with the rise and fall of the estuary waters--one of only four left in Britain. The mill is a fifteen-minute walk from the castle.

  • Wonderful little place. The stairs can be a bit tricky for little people. But great place for young and old.
  • Highly enjoyable place, very atmospheric. Drawing comparisons between the Norman, Tudor and Elizabethan architecture leads to memorable history lessons. Great fun wandering around the rooms and tunnels.
  • I was not sure what to expect when i took my brothers 4 kids here for the day. I was amazing. Lots to do and see, a great piece of history in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside.
  • Looks beautiful.. My family owned this
  • Fantastic castle and picturesque views. Take a picnic and enjoy the whole place!
