    Once the seat of a succession of major barons, Pembroke Castle has often had a leading role in shaping Britain's history. On your visit you can explore the labyrinth of passageways and towers, take in the views from the 75ft high Great Keep, descend into Wogan Cavern and enjoy a wonderful picnic or lunch in the stylish café.

    Pembroke Castle has a long and fascinating history, for it was around 1093 that Arnulf de Montgomery built the small inner bailey standing at the end of the promontory.

    Only a few years later the castle withstood a long siege by the Welsh, although its defenders were near starvation. The late 12th century keep is both an outstanding feature and architectural novelty, for it has a massive cylindrical tower with an unusual stone dome.
