Manorbier Castle

Manorbier castle consists of a well preserved12th century gatehouse, a keep, two 13th century towers, and a vaulted chapel.

The Great Hall, Chapel and Turrets are dotted with life size figures.

Although not very large the gatehouse topped by an observation tower is an impressive defence structure.

Part of the workings for the drawbridge and portcullis can still be seen.Either side of the gatehouse is a walled walkway linked to the round and north towers.

The square keep has three storeys with an entrance on the first floor.The great hall is also on the first floor but extends to the second floor.

Manorbier has had a peaceful history with just a minor conflict in the 15th century.

When the crown disposed of the castle in 1670, it was declared derelict until a local family purchased it and it remained with the family until the 20th century.

The castle was featured in the television adaption of "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe".

As you wander around inside the castle atmospheric music helps transport your imagination back in time.

This picturesque castle is located in the village of Manorbier close to Manorbier Beach
