Only small but interesting and good views non the less. Easy and free parking, free entry, and dog friendly makes it worth a visit. There's also a coastal path to extend your walk.

I think this is the oldest standing castle left in Wales and turned out to be a nice little explore. Offering lovely views and a nice place to walk the dog. Parking available and close to the tracks onto the seafront.

Great castle ruins with some fine views. Entry is free and there is a free car park nearby too. Take an umbrella and a coat on rainy days!

The castle stands on marshes just outside the town centre and is in relatively good shape with several towers intact. Worth a visit to appreciate the history of Wales.

There is a free public car park about 150m away from the castle. Just drive past the castle and follow the P signs. The car park is an easy flat walk to the castle entrance. The castle is also free.
