7 Welsh Castles That Will Take You Back in Time ...


Welsh castles are available in hoards over here. I’ve been living in Wales (on and off) for around 12 years now, and I am pretty sure most people are within 10 miles of a castle regardless of where they live. Or at least it seems that way! A lot of Welsh castles haven’t received much attention in recent years, which means they have essentially become stumps in the ground. Those that have been preserved are astounding!

1. Pembroke Castle

Pembroke Castle

Fans of the Tudors and The White Queen should love Pembroke Castle! It was the birthplace of Henry VII, and the place where Margaret Beaufort lived during her first marriage and while she was under protection. I live about an hour away from Pembroke Castle, and it is easily one of the most popular Welsh castles. You can even enter the room where Henry VII was born!
