Pembroke Mini Guide
Pembroke is a town in south west Wales in the county of Pembrokeshire. This historic old town has proved popular with tourists because of its fortified architecture and 11th century origins. It is also still largely unspoilt whilst having a number of attractions to keep visitors entertained such as shops, restaurants and museums.
Pembroke means 'land’s end' and this is an apt description as it is out on an isolated peninsula. Pembroke is also close to the shipping and ship building town of Pembroke Dock which is situated on the Cleddau River. The main landmark in Pembroke is the medieval Pembroke Castle which used to be home to King Henry VII (he was born there in 1457) and his likeness has been immortalised in one of the towers. The castle is well worth visiting as it gives you amazing views out over Pembroke and the surrounding dock areas.
