Pembroke is a walled, medieval town that dates back to 1093 and the arrival of the Normans. It is famed for its magnificent castle, one of the finest examples of a Norman fortress to be found in the whole of Great Britain, and much of the original town wall still remains. Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII and founded the houses of Tudor, was born in Pembroke Castle in 1457 and received his early education at what is now known as Monkton Priory Church. Pembroke also played a significant part in the English Civil War, with Oliver Cromwell having taken charge of the siege of the town in 1648. Many of the points of historical interest can be seen on the town trail walk.
