Details for Picton Castle & Gardens

Situated in the south west of Wales in the lovely county of Pembrokeshire and around three miles east of the town of Haverfordwest is the magnificent Picton Castle. A great day trip destination, this is the finest stately home in Pembrokeshire.

This ancient building is unique in the country being designed as half mediaeval castle and half fortified manor house. The castle dates back as far as the end of the 13th century and as you enter through the gatehouse instead of a more usual inner courtyard there are a series of superbly planned rooms as you would expect in a fine country house. Entrance to the castle is by guided tour where visitors can view the fine architecture, lovely furniture and works of art. This is a real ‘fairy tale' castle and is an ideal choice for people looking for somewhere special to hold their wedding or civil partnership, the Great Hall with its Minstrels Gallery being a popular choice for the actual ceremony.

Outside the castle are the stunning gardens. There are over 40 acres of lovely woodland gardens and well maintained grounds for visitors to explore. Take a stroll on one of the family trails and view the number of shrubs from all corners of the globe blended together with wild flowers. For the children there is an adventure playground with a mini wooden castle to enjoy and the whole family can try not to get lost in the maze. The grounds have plenty of ideal spots to sit and enjoy a picnic before taking in the lovely flowers in the walled garden. The jungle garden contains a host of unusual species of shrubs, flowers and plants including the Japanese Banana which can grow up to eight feet tall and sometimes produces miniature bananas.
