This summer promises to be a busy one at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, with a series of specialist tours planned over coming months.

The tours form part of an exciting programme of events and activities at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority-run attraction, which is open every day throughout the summer.

Tours taking place during opening hours will be included free with the normal admission charge, while evening tours will be subject to an extra charge.

On Wednesday 9 June and Wednesday 7 July at 2.30pm, visitors will be given the chance to join a free guided tour of the newly renovated Walled Garden, where a knowledgeable guide will provide an introduction to the beds of culinary, dye, medicinal and fragrant herbs and give fascinating insights into their uses throughout history. 

Also included free with normal admission is a Welsh language tour of the castle on Saturday 19 June at 2.30pm.

For those with an interest in the practicalities of building a castle, the free Secrets of Castle Construction tour on Wednesday 30 June focuses on long-forgotten building techniques and the hidden architectural features of these ancient fortifications.

On Sunday 4 July, castle visitors are invited to discover the life, the loves and the legend of the most beautiful woman in Wales on the free Princess Nest tour.

The ever-popular Ghost Walks also return to Carew this summer, offering the chance to learn about the darker side of castle life. Filled with tales of ghosts, hauntings and other hair-raising happenings, the first of these events will take place on Wednesday 28 July at 7.45pm, with further dates arranged for 11 August at 7.30pm and 25 August at 7pm.

Kitty Parsons

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" Pembrokeshire.online has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
