There has been a castle on this site in Pembroke since 1093, although much of what you see today dates back to the 12th/13th Century.
The massive 80ft high cylindrical stone keep is a particularly noteworthy architectural feature. Pembroke was also the birth place of Henry Tudor in 1457, who became the future King Henry VII, first of the famous Tudor dynasty of English monarchs.
It was a particularly wet and grey day when we visited Pembroke Castle last October, so I’ve tried to work with that in the processing of the shots below, making them a little darker and more contrasty than I would normally.

A really nice castle. Castles are so photogenic
Very nice photos. Fancy visiting Pembrokeshire later in the year as I’m unfamiliar with South Wales
Well worth a visit. Got a few more posts to come from Pembrokeshire yet including a couple more castles.
