Pembroke Castle served as the backdrop of the 2016 romantic blockbuster ‘Me before You’ and where William told Louisa: “When I was a kid, this used to be my favourite place in the whole world.” Visitors can now relive the moment and stroll along the riverbank, while taking in the glorious view of the castle.

And the majestic castle is more than just a beautiful  movie set, as the birthplace of King Henry VII, it also has a rich history and strong royal connections.

How to get here: Fly to London on British Airways’ special return fares starting from MYR2,974*. Take a bus from London’s Victoria Coach Station to Pembroke Castle.
