As some of you know, we returned to Wales last October to visit our favourite UK staycation place, Bluestone. During our time in West Wales we ventured out of the Bluestone resort and visited a number of places around the area, including Pembroke Castle. Today I am sharing with you our visit and will be including some information to help you enjoy your visit to Pembroke Castle with Kids.
Although BattleKid and I had visited once before with my Dad and nephew before he was a year old, I knew that before we left the UK for our new life in Portugal I wanted to bring him on a dragon hunting adventure at Cardiff Castle.
