Pembroke, in the south of the County of Pembrokeshire, sits on the banks of the River Cleddau and is steeped in royal history.
The castle in Pembroke can be traced back to 1093 and tools found in a nearby cavern suggest a settlement was here during the Stone Age. In 1454 the future King Henry V11 was born here. A very impressive building that was under siege by Cromwell during the Civil Wars of 1642 - 1649. The architecture and position is spectacular and a 75foot high keep is well worth a visit.
