Carmarthen
The castle at Carmarthen is overlooking the River Twyi, , the Roman fort must have dominated the Roman town. The castle was converted into a prison in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the building of the Council offices has also not helped its appreciation as a military entity. However, enough remains to make a visit worthwhile. Free Town and Castle tours which take place from Castle House during the summer months and on most Wednesdays, depending on weather conditions.
Carmarthen

Head to Gwili Steam Railway for an insight into the history of local and wartime industries with steam locomotives and a standard gauge preserved railway.

Please Note: Not all aspects are disabled friendly, and dogs are welcomed but not allowed in the dining car. 

Stepaside Ironworks originally opened in 1849, obtaining ore from the Amroth area and was transported by Saundersfoot railway. The Ironworks are now very much a ruins nowadays with the Engine Blasting House and the Casting House being more well-preserved.
Tenby
Tenby Castle was originally built by the Normans in the 12th Century, of which only a small tower remains on the top of Castle Hill. The town walls however, which it is believed were built later on in the 13th Century, are impressively well preserved, with the east walls running complete to the Esplanade.

Tenby Museum is in a superb location atop Castle Hill, overlooking Caldey Island and Carmarthen Bay. The museum itself is home to a number of displays and exhibits including a maritime display, a Roald Dahl exhibit and a WWI exhibition. A really popular attraction is The Story of Tenby gallery where you can learn all about the local history of the seaside town. There are interactive activities and audio visual displays to keep the little ones entertained during your visit. Also making home inside Tenby museum is a library and archive, both of which store information on local history and natural history as well as many items which link back to the area. Inside the Museum is two art galleries which host a programme of changing works and exhibitions. Pay a visit to the shop where you will be able to purchase unique gifts and prints. or enjoy a trip to the coffee shop for a refreshing hot drink with a beautiful view.
