Dinas Powys Castle
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The castle consists of a rectangular court enclosed within stone walls, about 68 metres by 32 metres. There would originally have been a hall and domestic buildings of masonry and timber along the walls. Remains of a rectangular tower stand at the north-west end, linked to the outer face of the enclosure wall. The tower may actually predate the walls. Beyond the tower is an earlier counterscarp defence.
