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.
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.
Manorbier
Conquered by a Norman knight in 1003, this castle was initially built in Motte-and-Bailey before being refortified in stone. This castle is full of history after being attacked twice during minor wars and it was seized during the English Civil War. In the late 1800's, repairs took place on the building and castle walls. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.

Built in timber around 1100 by Gerald of Windsor, this now-ruined stone castle is a very popular historic attraction. The walk around the Castle and Tidal Mill is particularly popular with dog owners. The walk is a great free attraction, however there are admission charges upon entry to the castle. Carew Castle often hosts special events throughout the year, see their website for more information.

Please Note: Well behaved dogs are welcome inside the castle providing they are kept on a short lead. 

Carew Cheriton control tower museum, restored to original state as part of a community project. A lasting memorial to all who served on the airfield through two world wars. The airmen who main the supreme sacrifice during those years. A structure for educational use focused on school and group visits who are studying this period of modern day history. A tourist attraction offering a wartime experience.
Once a retreat for medieval bishop's seeking a tranquil surrounding away from the Church, Lamphey Bishop's Palace has been extremely well preserved despite dating back centuries. The Western Hall, Inner Gatehouse and the 82 foot long Great Hall are still an impressive sight to see. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Narberth
First recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116, Narberth Castle bears the legend that it was once a palace described in the mythical tales of Mabinogion. Unfortunately, very little of the stone structure remains but you can see that it was once rectangular in shape with circular towers. By the end of the 20th Century, Narberth Castle was derelict and so in 2006, renovations took place and it was opened to the public.
