How to Get There

The closest parking lot is the pay-and-display Manorbier Beach Car Park, about three minutes from the castle via a side entrance. Guests in need of parking for people with disabilities must reach out to arrange on-site parking ahead of time. Manorbier Station is about a 30-minute walk from the castle. The better-connected Tenby Station is a half-hour 349 bus ride away, though bus services conclude in the early evening.

When to Get There

Avoid going on a rainy day—the stone flooring can become slippery, and there’s limited shelter. The castle typically opens daily, though verify ahead of time, as the site is sometimes closed for private functions.
