Welcome to Kidwelly Castle, a magnificent fortress situated in the town of Kidwelly in Carmarthenshire.
As one of the best-preserved castles in Wales, visitors can expect to see a remarkable combination of features from different periods. The castle's imposing outer walls, inner ward, and towers were built in the 13th century by the de Chaworth family, who were the lords of Kidwelly at the time. The castle's inner courtyard includes a round tower, great hall, and chambers that are believed to have been used by the lord and lady of the castle.
The castle's location on a ridge overlooking the Gwendraeth Valley and the River Gwendraeth adds to its grandeur and majesty. Visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside from the castle's ramparts, which offer a commanding view of the river and the town below.
