Visited the castle which had lots of information and a family quiz where you had to look for pieces of a jigsaw to make a word. Both children (4yrs and 7yrs) had lots of fun. Took less than 2hrs to do and see everything.

The castle at Laugharne is interesting and self touring allows visitors to stop at will to take photos and imagine life then. Very peaceful and beautiful! The gift shop is well stocked and reasonably priced with various goods. Parking is a little tricky unless you're up for a short stroll.

The castle provides excellent views of Laugharne itself as well as out to sea. It is easy to imagine how it dominated the area when Laugharne was a thriving coastal port. There is a fair amount of castle to see, including a keep to climb. The view of the castle from the entrance is terrific. The associated grounds are well... More

Well worth a visit as although they are ruins they give a great indication of what this castle must have been like. And the views were amazing across the River Taff and beyond.

A stunning castle ruin standing alongside Dylan's 'heron - priested shore', surely the inspiration for a million photographs, none of them as good as sight of the real thing. An adjacent car park gives the traveller chance to scale its walls and achieve a 'snappers paradise.

Located on the edge of the salt marsh this ruined castle dominates the village. There are lovely views across the estuary. It was not possible to go in when we visited.

A great place to take the family after coming off the beach, it's a short walk although all uphill to the castle, free entrance and a great place to take breathtaking photographs from the castle walls, worthy of the treak up

Lovely frosty walk along the water side. We wandered along the path and enjoyed Dylan Thomas' boat shed. Lovely place to visit, sadly the castle was closed.
