Explore Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is special - very special

What makes anything special? It’s a feeling you get. When you get to know Pembrokeshire, you get to know the people that make it so welcoming, the landscape that makes it feel so exciting, the culture that makes you wonder: how have I not been here sooner?

Along the coast, towering cliffs plunge into a pristine sea in complete contrast to the rolling Preseli mountains to the north. These 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 mudflats teeming with bird life.

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

These incredibly diverse and distinctive landscapes are all converge to create the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Britain’s only coastal National Park.

The towns and villages of Pembrokeshire vary greatly too. Coastal towns perched high on the cliffs like Tenby or Fishguard. Tiny harbour villages such as 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.

"Rugged cliffs, sandy beaches and wild inland hills, these are the elements that define the distinctive landscape of this superb county."

Griff Rhys Jones
