Kidwelly Castle is a large castle in a nice setting. It is a beautiful example of castle development, as the castle has dramatically developed over the years.
Roger, bishop of Salisbury, established Norman power in the area and the castle that he built here was one of a series of strongholds designed by the Normans to secure south Wales by commanding the river passes here and at Laugharne, Llansteffan and Loughor.
A walk around the exterior of the castle is recommended, as its dominating position within the town is best appreciated from outside.
Kidwelly retains the street pattern of the medieval walled town, and though the walls themselves have disappeared, the early 14th-century South Gate of the town still stands on the main street opposite the castle.
Kidwelly the town developed shortly after the castle, and a small priory was established for the Benedictines at the same time, in 1114.
