About Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is known for its beautiful beaches and countryside. It was also a filming location for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! Read on for some fun activities to do with your foster family:

Pembroke Castle

This castle, birthplace of Henry VII, is a fun day out for all the family. You can explore the labyrinth of passageways and towers, climb the 75ft high Great Keep and see the Wogan Cavern. Find out more about Pembroke Castle.

Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo

Explore the park and see over 50 species of wildlife including lions, penguins, giraffes and rhinos. There are four themed adventure parks, and it is home to Europe’s largest undercover funfair. Find out more about Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo.

Castle Beach

Visible from the ruins of Tenby Castle, this sandy beach has views of St Catherine’s Island, the site of an historic fort which is accessible at low tide. The shallow waters are a favourite with swimmers. Leave the beach and enjoy Tenby, with its pubs, cafes and shops. Find out more about Castle Beach.
