We stayed at the Lamphey Court Hotel which is located opposite side of this Palace ruin. Enjoyef walking around for the good 4pool5 mins with kids (10 & 12yo). Very impressive ruin for the free of charge.

As ruins go! Free to get in, which is a bonus. Impressive ruins that can still give an aire of the by gone splendour and grandeur of the place. You are free to roam and enter the remains of the Bishops Palace. Its not particularly suitable for wheelchair users or the infirm as the ground is uneven and mostly grassed.... More

This is a hidden gem, you can really feel the history as you walk among the well preserved ruins. Well worth a Sunday morning stroll.

Very quiet location just opposite the Best Western hotel. Free to enter and plenty of space to wander round and take photographs. If you're in the area and like old ruins worth a visit.

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
