We visited this after seeing the positive reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The restoration of the control tower is superb and the volunteer who talked about the local associated history around this time was excellent.

This little gem of a museum is well worth a visit if you are on holiday in the Tenby area. The tower has been carefully restored to it’s original wartime state by a team of dedicated volunteers.There is an interesting little museum with WW1 and 2 artefacts and local history information. The admission charge of £5 seemed very reasonable. We had an informative guided tour and even tried on war uniforms. There is also an air raid shelter and hangar with vehicles in. You can view a plane being restored. The team were very friendly indeed and went the extra mile to make your visit enjoyable. Toilets including disabled available.They are clearly very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I'd just like to thank you all so much for another fantastic visit to the control tower, which was made all the better due to the time, patience and enthusiasm that you showed to the children during our visit. It was truly invaluable. The children have really enjoyed learning about both world wars, and have shown so much interest, understanding and compassion, which was mainly due to the invaluable experience that they gained from you all at Carew Cheriton.

Wow! A fabulous day spent at Carew Cheriton Control Tower. The volunteers were excellent - very knowledgeable and brilliant with the children. They had a fantastic collection of artefacts that we were able to hold / wear. Every child came away with information and stories that they will remember for years to come.
Totally Superb

Totally superb. Wonderful staff who both knowledgeable and willing to communicate that knowledge to all their varied visitors. Would recommend everyone who's interested in the history of warfare in the air take time out from their holidays in Pembrokeshire to visit.

My husband knows everything about everything to do with the wars and RAF and he loved this. I know a lot less and I loved it too. So many tidbits of info to make it come alive. The guides are so enthusiastic and excited to show you everything. My girls loved it too, especially the air raid shelter.
