Towns in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire has sleepy  villages, bustling towns and even its own city. Some of our favourites are listed below.

Fishguard & Goodwick: Fishguard has a rich history it is made up of 3 areas , lower town, main town and Goodwick and has many festivals and events throughout the year.

Lower town is next to the small harbour where the river Gwaun meets the sea. It is where  Dylan Thomas’ play Under Milk Wood was filmed and starred Richard Burton. The pub he used to frequent, The Ship, is still there with Burton memorabilia on proud display. Main town is quaint with winding streets and the focus of the town square. Here you will find the town hall which houses the famous Last Invasion Tapestry which depicts the last ever invasion of mainland Britain and farmers market. Goodwick village is next to the port and has a selection of shops and eateries. Click here.

Haverfordwest: Pembrokeshire’s county town is the main shopping and administrative hub. It has its own castle, museum and even remains of a medieval priory. There is a farmers market here every Friday from 9am to 3pm. For those needing some retail therapy, there is a retail park with M&S, Next, Boots, Laura Ashley and other well know retailers.

Tenby: Considered one of the prettiest, if not the prettiest seaside town in Wales. The town has its own fortified walls, built by the Normans when the town was established. The centre is a maze of narrow streets, but it is surrounded by 3 beaches. Caldey Island lies off land from South beach, and is home to Cistercian Monks. Even though a very bustling place in the height of summer, it wont disappoint.

Narberth: Now a thriving small town full of boutique type shops and art and craft goodies. Its old town hall add to its charm and appeal and it is the location of the Narberth food festival.

St Davids: Pembrokehire’s only city,  and one of the smallest city's in Britain. It is in fact a small village with a very impressive cathedral. This is the birth place of St David the patron saint of Wales'. The cathedral dates back to the 12th century. A bustling place in the summer months, it has its own amazing beaches .

Pembroke:  Most famous for its Norman Castle, one of the most complete in the UK, Pembroke is a charming walled town  with a central main street heading east from the castle gates full of fine old buildings featuring shops, cafes and pubs.For more information on Pembroke Castle Click here.
