Carew Castle - from Norman Fort to Elizabethan Country House
The archaeological evidence of settlements at Carew Castle dates back over 2000 years.

During the Summer months a wide variety of events are staged at Carew, inlucing drama, school projects, holiday activities, battle re-enactments, country fairs and concerts.
Over the centuries, remarkable individuals, some with close royal connections, have made their mark on the castle. The beautiful Princess Nest, The powerful Rhys ap Thomas, and the ambitious Sir John Perrot are all part of the story of Carew Castle.
Within the historic site at Carew (which is managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority) is also the four-storey Tidal Mill, one of only three restored tital mills in Britain, with all its original machinery. Also within the site is a 11th century celtic cross, one of the three finest in Wales.
A mile long round walk with delightful views begins at the main car park. Another car park is available at the picnic area. Longer walks can be made in the area, starting at either of the car parks. Information is available in the castle.
