Laugharne CastleLaugharne Castle was first established in the early 12th century as an earth and timber castle. A small defended town was established and settlers brought in, mainly from the West Country.

The castle as it can be seen today dates mainly from the mid to late 13th century, when it was home to the 'de Brian' family who originated from Devon. The de Brian family were granted the Lordship of 'Talachar' and dominated the town throughout the middle ages.

Today, much of the stone castle survives, including two large round towers and the gatehouse. The transformation of the castle into a Mansion was the work of Sir John Perrot, who was granted Laugharne by Elizabeth I in 1584.

The castle is managed by Cadw and is open to the public from 1st April to 30th September. There is on street parking and a large car park just a short walk away below the castle.
