Upton Castle Gardens are one of Pembrokeshire’s hidden gems and a must for gardening enthusiasts or anyone wanting to experience real peace and tranquillity.
The 35 acres of listed historic gardens surround the early 13th century castle (a family home, not open to the public) and contain an amazing collection of rare trees and shrubs as well as a formal rose garden, herbaceous borders and an early 19th century traditional walled vegetable garden. The medieval chapel, the subject of a Time Team programme, contains ancient effigies and is actually older than the castle itself. Woodland walks lead through ancient trees past the remains of medieval fish ponds to the tidal estuary of the River Cleddau.
Open daily from 1st April to 30th September.
Admission £6 adults. £1.50 children. Season tickets available.
