Great Castle to explore. This is a partial ruin, but there is many areas that gives you great views and a sense of what life was life. This site is not for individuals with physical disabilities or limitations. It is must see site.

I have always wanted to visit Manorbier Castle. Sadly, the first impressions were not good... the person selling tickets was clearly either having a bad day, or doesn't like or respect visitors. Rather gruff and rude. Looking back at previous reviews I think she may...More

This is a privately owned Castle so is not in the pristine condition you sometimes find at other castles around the Welsh coast. However the castle itself is delightful and there are many interesting places to see around the Ramparts and Towers. The views from...More

I am captivated by this castle. Having spent a summer of visiting quite a few castles and having visited many in recent years, I'd say this is possibly the most beautiful,and certainly the most unspoilt; there's still ivy growing on the walls in some parts,...More

We recently to Manorbier Castle, where they seemed to be setting up for a wedding as a massive marquee took up most of the space. I was most excited about looking in the crypt, however this was basically being used as storage for a wedding....More

Had tea in the cafe then a stroll round the castle. Enjoyable couple of hours for all the family. Including climbing to the top of the tower.

They have a good website with open and closed dates but it only goes to the end of September so far. There is a phone number and email address. You had better check as it is a popular wedding site.

Oooh, there is a lot of outdoor and it is below the village towards the beach, a pretty exposed spot. In wet weather the steps on the spiral staircases could also be tricky. The café is small with only very few places... More
