This includes Princess Nest, who was dubbed the most beautiful woman in Wales, and Sir Rhys Ap Thomas, the man who is said to have killed Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth.

Carew Castle Manager, Daisy Hughes said: “The tour is perfect for fluent Welsh speakers and learners alike as the tour guide is Christian Donovan, who as well as having an in-depth knowledge of the Castle’s history, is a local Welsh language tutor who has taught adult Welsh classes for many years in Pembrokeshire.

“Come and learn more about the site’s turbulent past, see how the building was developed over hundreds of years and hear about the ghosts that are said to haunt the Castle to this day.”
