History

History

Pembroke dates back to before roman times, but it was not until the Normans that the town begins to take shape.
Rhys ap Tewdwr, ruler of South Wales, died in 1093, and Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Shrewsbury took over and began to build what is now Pembroke Castle.
King Stephen gave Pembroke to Gilbert de Clare and named him the first Earl of Pembroke.
William Marshall, one of the foremost knights of medieval Europe was named Marshall the new Earl of Pembroke.

William Marshalls sons took over the castle in the fullness of time and were forced to pay a large fee of £100 to ensure that Llewelyn the Great did not sack the town or castle in 1220.

Reviews of Pembroke

Pembroke is a small market town with a big heart.
The town is full of history with Pembroke Castle, birth place of Henry Tudor, being a spectacular and worthwhile visit for all. The town has suffered a bit in terms of prosperity but it has a range of local shops and one or two specialist shops. Pubs are plentiful and serve a broad spectrum of people, highly recommended are The Old Kings Arms in Main Street where the food and accommodation are good. The George Hotel and Watermans Arms are also worth a visit. The Mill Pond offers a nice level walk, very suited to wheel chair access. There is a tourist info center on The Commons, a wide open public space with a childrens play park, spoilt only by graffitti-but such is life.
