Heritage Sites In West Wales

Wales has an unusually rich variety of heritage sites to visit, spanning ancient hill forts, Roman ruins and goldmines, spectacular medieval castles, stately homes and the factories of the industrial revolution among much else.

This is just a short list of our favourites; you will find many more places to explore!

Pembroke Castle

Idyllically set on the banks of the river estuary, this mighty fortress is largely intact, and its endless passages, tunnels and stairways are great fun to explore, plus there are super exhibitions, which tell the tale of its medieval life. 31.8 miles*

Dinefwr Park and Castle

A magical land of power and influence for more than 2,000 years, Dinefwr Park and Castle is an iconic place in the history of Wales. 19.4 miles*

Laugharne Castle

Think Laugharne, think Dylan Thomas. A bittersweet love affair between townsfolk and resident poet, conducted via prickly poems and supremely clever short stories. 17.2 miles*

Kidwelly Castle

We all get our moments. But if you want a truly medieval moment, catch a glimpse of Kidwelly shrouded in early morning mist. Spine-tingling stuff. So complete and well-preserved it’s a match for any of the great castles of Wales. 19.8 miles*

Colby Woodland Garden

A beautiful woodland garden and a fun place to be 21.9 miles*

Cilgerran Castle

Cilgerran Castle stands on a precipitous, craggy promontory overlooking the river Teifi where it merges with the Plysgog stream. 9.6 miles*
