This is a free attraction & is an interesting historical place to wander around. There is an extensive range of buildings to be explored with some information boards to help with understanding how the site would have been used in its heyday.

visited in February, the weather was fairly mild, with some light rain. The place has limited facilities, and shelter from the elements, being mostly open to the elements. There are several boards explaining the various structures. Very interesting and informative information provided.

Close to the Lamphey Court hotel. These are large imposing ruins I assume caused by the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII.

Although a ruin as you walk around the buildings you get a good idea of what it must of been like all those years ago. A pleasant stroll after lunch!

We walked round the palace ruins during our stay at the adjoining hotel. I should like to visit in the summer as it would be an ideal place to walk and picnic. The ruins have an interesting history which you need to read up on before your visit. I have to say I would not have travelled specifically but it... More

Excellent for a lovely walk in beautiful surroundings with plenty of history and occasionally things for children to do like treasure hunts.

We found it nearly by accident and so glad we did. Good that it is open during the winter and free. Great place to take a dog and she was able to wander around free as it is entirely walled in. We took lots of photos and had a really nice time. We would have liked to see some more... More

Interesting but unexciting. Good for historians but not for adventurers. Pleasant and tranquil setting, well maintained but would have liked some additional information. Nevertheless worth a visit and helped create an appreciattion of how the church looked after its heirarchy.

A little of the main road this palace is well worth a visit. The full scale of the size is hidden until you step through the entrance which is free. It wont be a long visit but is well worth making the effort. The visitor centre was closed when we went out of season. I don't think there is any... More
