Tenby is a harbour town and resort in southwest Wales. It’s known for its 13th-century town walls and its stretches of sandy shoreline, including Castle Beach. The ruins of Tenby Castle are on a headland overlooking the harbour. Exhibits at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery include 16th-century wrought-iron cannon. The Tudor Merchant’s House recreates domestic life in 1500, with a merchant’s shop and working kitchen.
Tenby is among the U.K’s most popular seaside towns and boasts a plethora of cafes, traditional pubs and restaurants mixed with a multitude of quirky shops and other places of interest. It is beautifully set alongside a jaw-dropping view over the town’s vast sandy beaches, quaint fishing port and spectacular coastal panoramas. Throughout the holiday season, Tenby hosts what feels like a never-ending schedule of exciting and interesting events.
Saundersfoot, next door, is Tenby’s little sister. A quieter, tranquil fishing port. Equally as picturesque, it is a wonderful spot to while away an afternoon.
The nearby, historic market town of Carmarthen is purported to be the oldest town in Wales; it has a mix of well-known high street stores, and interesting independents, along with lots of traditional pubs, cafes and eateries.
