Carew Castle Manager, Daisy Hughes said: “With Wales celebrating the Year of the Sea it’s the ideal time to introduce children to the essential skills that would have been possessed by the pirates who once prowled the Pembrokeshire Coast.

“As well as learning all about a life at sea, families can also use these events to discover the hidden corners of the Castle which could at one time have been used to hoard piles of pirate treasure.”
