“History at its best! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2016 via mobile

Absolute brilliance from the volunteers who run the tower! Very informative and so easy to listen to! Much is to come from such a little known part of history! This needs to be a huge part of British heritage! Needs to be recognised by all.

“Surprise ! Surprise !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2016

A coach load of people were coming to Pe,mbrokeshire and wanted a guided tour - I took them to Carew Control Tower. As we arrived they said they did not want to go in, however, I couldn't get them from the place. A small group even travelled all the way back the following day. A thoroughly good pl;ace to visit.

“Real history!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2016

A real war time air field with a real war time control tower brimming with war time memorabilia. Large car park and run by real enthusiasts. This is well worth a visit either if you remember the Battle of Britain or are just interested. It is not huge and you won't spend the whole day there, but it is extremely interesting and the guys there are full of information and happy to chat all day. Just stand outside, close your eyes and imagine those young pilots scrambling and flying to meet the enemy in their spitfires for the freedom you and I have today!
It is also worth remembering that this was one of our first lines of defence during the battle of Britain. A great deal of nostalgia in a small package. Worth a visit, but it is what it is!
