“Go to the top!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

A very pleasant walk to the top of the castle. Interesting to read and look at how the castle was in it's heyday. Towers to climb although the walls are no longer safe, Some amazing views over the mouth of the estuary. Wll worth the climb

“Its worth the climb! Go for it!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We loved the views from this outstanding ruin. It was worth the climb and even on a less than perfect day gave us lots of photo opportunities. Do not be put off by the climb from the beach but wear stout shoes (in winter).

“Fun for everyone”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Norman Castle sitting above the Estuary of the river Towy. Great views up the estuary and out to sea. Kids can climb all over the ruins which are free to access. Lots of interesting placards all around the ruins and the local area which give you insight into the history. Additionally there is a lovely coastal walk around to the next bay. A beautiful and quiet area of the Welsh coastline and yet only a few miles from Carmarthen.
