Explore Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is special. Very special.

Why? The diversity of breathtaking scenery. Towering sea cliffs plunge into a pristine sea and in complete contrast, the Preseli Mountains to the north. These rolling moorland hills, rich with wildlife and history are the origin of the Stonehenge Bluestones.

Flowing right through the heart of the county is the Daugleddau Estuary, a series of quiet tidal backwaters that at low tide reveal salt marsh and mud flats teeming with bird life. 

Of course there’s the internationally recognised 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path that wiggles its way through all of these amazing landscapes providing you with awesome scenery, wildlife encounters and new experiences at every turn.

These incredible and distinctive landscapes are all brought together as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Britain's only coastal National Park.

But it’s not just the landscape that’s varied. Where else could you visit an island that is home to an order of Cistercian monks with their vow of silence or visit a beach, famous not only for its surfing but also as a movie set for Harry Potter and Robin Hood?

The towns and villages of Pembrokeshire vary greatly too. Coastal towns perched high on the cliffs like Tenby or Llawhaden, a tiny hamlet with its fortified bishops palace or Porthgain with its history of brick making. Narberth is a shoppers paradise, this small market town excels with small independent shops providing an outlet for many of the artists and craftspeople that live and work in Pembrokeshire.

Exploring Pembrokeshire wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Britain’s smallest city, St Davids. St Davids is a quaint, and tiny, city with only 1600 residents. Tucked away, the cathedral that gives St Davids its city status is hard to spot, but once discovered its breathtaking magnificence is revealed. It really does stop you in your tracks.

There is so much to discover and so many experiences to be had, you just need to get out there, explore Pembrokeshire and see what adventures await you.

 I love Pembrokeshire, it's fantastic!
