About Pembroke

Pembroke is a fascinating Welsh coastal town with a jumble of buildings in styles from several periods. At the upper end of the town lies one of the largest and most impressive Norman castles in Britain. It is fabled as the birthplace of Henry VII, King of England, who was born in the castle in 1457, and is surrounded on three sides by water.

The castle is superb, it comprises of massive thick walls inset with seven bastion towers, with the dominating feature being the impressive central keep rising to almost 80 ft high with walls 20 ft thick. The castle, its Gatehouse, the Country Court, the Norman Hall and the Wogan, a natural cave over which the castle was built, together with sections of the old town walls add to the romantic atmosphere of what is now a lively resort town ideal for exploring diverse and dramatic landscapes steeped in rich Celtic history.

Pembroke nestles in a landscape of lush river valley's, beautiful beaches and rugged mountains, it is perfect for exploring the lovely Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and for the Pembroke National Park with its wealth of wonderful places to enjoy. The town's main street is lined with charming Georgian and Victorian properties, some with colourful shop fronts offering Welsh goods and souvenirs.

Visitors exploring the area will find quiet, tranquil spots and the naturalist will relish the unique wildlife habitats occupied by a diverse range of rare species.

The Celtic history of the region is ever present, it can be discovered in any number of tiny hamlets and little villages where lie hidden medieval churches with ancient Celtic crosses and tombs.

Pembroke offers plenty of accommodation including grand historic halls turned in to fine country hotels, self-catering and simple bed and breakfast in the ambience of a typical Welsh stone farmhouse. There are plenty of cafe's, restaurants and inns in Pembroke, particularly inns of the 18th and 19th century which have fortunately retained much of their original charm and character.
