Milford Haven & Fishguard - Pembroke & its Castle (half day)

The second largest castle in Wales, Pembroke Castle was built in the 12th century by the English. Set on a limestone hill, it guarded the strategically important town of Pembroke. The massive curtain walls have five projecting round towers and a great keep, 21 metres high and 6 metres thick at the base. An unusual feature is the huge vaulted cavern— probably used as a boathouse—below the Norman hall. The castle proved so impregnable to cannon fire during the Civil War that Cromwell’s men had to starve out the castle’s Royalist defenders!

Visit the castle and enjoy free time in this picturesque town before being taken back to the ship.
