Why Pembrokeshire?

Heritage

Wales itself is steeped in tradition and Pembrokeshire is home to some of the most magnificent pieces of Welsh history. Wales is home to 600 castles and Pembrokeshire has a fair few of the lot from medieval castles to Celtic religious shrines. Most renowned are Pembroke Castle and Carew Castle, whilst Manorbier Castle was once described by Gerald of Wales as “the pleasantest place in Wales”.  


Nature & Wildlife

Home to Britain’s only coastal national park, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Pembrokeshire is abundant in awe-inspiring scenery. If you’re looking for a seaside break then this is the place to visit. Pembrokeshire has 52 beaches and more Blue Flag and Seaside Awards than anywhere else in Britain. Even National Geographic voted it the second best coastal destination in the world!

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park covers 612 square kilometers and runs from Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south and includes the Presli Hill and The Daugleddau Estuary. To really experience this beautiful piece of the world visitors should head out on to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which covers 186 miles.


Outdoor Activities

The white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters make Pembrokeshire a perfect place to visit for adrenaline junkies too. Try your hand at kayaking, surfing, fishing, sailing, and many more activities. There are plenty of experienced guides and instructions on hand to help you and show you the best places to explore.

Or if you prefer to take things a bit slower then why not head off and horse ride into the Presli Hills. Riders can experience one in a lifetime viewpoints of the coast and even ride on the sandy beaches too!

Maybe you want to explore the region on two wheels. Not only are there great walking routes and paths in Pembrokeshire but also miles and miles of cycle routes and paths. Take the Sustrans Celtic Trail West or National Cycle Network 4 and 47. There are also plenty of family-friendly routes such as The Tramway near Saundersfoot which is also close to the beach!


Arts & Culture

With a rich heritage, Pembrokeshire is also home to many galleries and museums. Discover the artists that celebrated this beautiful region and seascapes. Oreily Park is a must visit as it houses some of the best landscape paintings in Wales.

If you want to step back in time and learn more about the people and industries that shaped Pembrokeshire head to Scolton Manor, Milford Haven Heritage and Maritime Museum, and Tenby Museum.

Of course, this is just a taste of what’s on offer in Pembrokeshire. There’s so much to see and do and something for all the family.
