Pembroke Things to Do

  • The Millpond

    The Millpond in Pembroke is a nice place to take a stroll alongside the waters edge. Another favourite pastime here is feeding the ducks & swans or sit by the waters edge just admiring the scenery.

  • Lamphey Bishops Palace

    The Bishops Palace a Lamphey was built by the bishops of St Davids as a Country retreat away from worries of Church and State. Here, amongst fishponds, fruit orchards, vegetable gardens and sweeping parklands, they could enjoy the life of country gentlemen. The palace was improved over two centuries, though it was mainly the work of Henry de Gower,...

  • St Govan's Chapel

    This wonderful 13th Century Chapel can be found perched precariously on the cliff at St Govan’s Head. It sits amongst the rocks, almost at sea level and is only accessible by climbing down 52 steps. It was built on the site of a holy well which once attracted pilgrims. Inside the sandy-floored chapel is a simple stone altar and a small cell carved...

  • Bosherston

    Bosherston is a lovely picturesque village just 5 miles South of Pembroke. It's well known mainly for the lily ponds which are surrounded by a network of paths which lead down to serene sand dunes and a secluded beach area. The Lily ponds are within easy walking distance of the village and there is a pay and display car park right next to them...

  • Brass Rubbing Centre

    Right next door to the Castle is the brass rubbing centre which is open during the summer months and at other times by arrangement. Even though we did not experience this first hand, this is a great way to keep the Children occupied for a few hours. Brass rubbing kits are also on sale in the Castle shop.

  • Manorbier Castle

    Manorbier is a small village on the south coast of Pembrokeshire not far from Pembroke town. We called after visiting Lamphey Bishops Palace.It is known mostly for the Castle and the beach in the cove nearby that is a said to be ideal for surfing.The Castle is privately owned (by the Phillips family of Picton Castle) It is well looked after with...

    The church on the hill opposite the castle was once part of Monkton Priory which was a Benedictine Priory granted to The Abbey of Seez in Normandy in 1098 although the site was already in use before the Normans arrived with a Celtic Christian community having existed here for many years. Although the Priory fell into disuse the disolution of the...

  • Town Walls

    There are substantial remains of the town walls which are thought to have been constructed in the later thirteenth-earlier fourteenth century's which run around the perimeter of the narrow peninsula along which the town lies with the castle crowning the cliffs at it's seaward end. The wall was repaired, and partly rebuilt during the 15th century,...

Pembroke Restaurants

  • Idyllic Setting

    On the way back from visiting St Govan's Chapel, we called into this lovely little pub which is nestled in the picturesque village of Bosherston. We did not eat here on this occasion but the menu did look really appetising. There are also en-suite rooms available here.

  • Great home cooked food

    The Royal George is a great local pub situated overlooking the millpond just a stones throw away from the mighty Pembroke Castle. We called in here in search for some hearty food after a busy afternoon exploring the Pembrokeshire coast. We were not disappointed at all, on walking through the door we were greeted with the aroma's of just what we...

  • Home Cooked Food

    We called into The Royal George because the menu looked really nice, it's not a big posh pub, as you walk in the bar is to the left and tables for food to the right, there is a room with a pool table as well. We ordered a drink at the bar before sitting and reading the menu and specials board. All the food looked really nice on the menu and the...
