King Arthur Country

Resort - Tenby

Overview

Tenby is a uniquely attractive resort. Its pastel coloured buildings, narrow streets, fortified walls and the quality of the light from its shimmering bays give it an atmosphere which is reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Its medieval castle was bombarded into submission by Cromwell using artillery on both land and sea and the feeling of a town whose history is much richer than most seaside resorts is very strong as one ambles around the narrow streets or stops for a drink in one of the many bars or cafés. The fifteenth century Tudor Merchants House gives an insight into life when it was a busy trading port. Tenby has four magnificent sandy beaches and a delightful harbour which is always busy with pleasure craft and the regular ferries which serve nearby Caldey Island monastery, a "must" to explore during your stay.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Outward Travel

Day 2 - Pembroke and St Davids

  • St Davids is technically a city due to its magnificent cathedral, it is actually an attractive village, set amongst beautiful coastal scenery.
  • St Davids Cathedral sits upon the site of an earlier sixth-century monastery built by St David and originates from sometime between 1180 and 1182.
  • Pembroke is a historic settlement and former county town of Pembrokeshire in West Wales.
  • Pembroke was the birthplace of Henry Tudor, later Henry VII of England.
  • The castle (entry fees apply) includes exhibition rooms which portray life as it would have been through various points in the Castle's history.

Day 3 - Day at Leisure

  • Today is left free to allow for relaxing in the hotel or exploring the local area.
  • Don't hesitate to enquire with the hotel reception regarding local attractions and travel options.

Day 4 - Narberth and Carmarthen

  • Narberth is at a crossroads, both in trasport terms, and in language terms, between Welsh speaking North Pembrokeshire and the English speaking South.
  • Known for its excellent local food shops, art galleries and boutiques, Narberth's High Street is a colourful shoppers paradise.
  • Narberth also hosts a ruined castle, which featured in the Mabinogion, and a small museum (entry fees apply) hosted in a former bonded warehouse.
  • Carmarthen is one of the oldest settlements in Wales and is believed by some to be the birthplace of King Arthur and Merlin.
  • Carmarthen Castle (free entry) dates back to the 12th century. There are information boards detailing the castle's history.
  • St Peter's Church in Carmarthen dates from at least the 14th century (present building). It is the largest church in the Diocese of St David's.
