LocationSouth Pembrokeshire's largest town, offers splendid Victorian and Georgian architecture set within Tudor town walls. Tenby's roots date back to the time of the Norman conquest when the county was invaded and colonised in around 1093. Much of the medieval castle walls, built by the Pembrokeshire Earls in 1264 to fortify the town from the Welsh rebellion, have survived intact to the present day. It is perched dramatically on a rocky promontory and boasts award winning Blue Flag status for the white sandy beaches. There is a picturesque harbour with busy boats ferrying people to the monastic island of Caldey or taking out families for fishing trips, lush Mediterranean-style vegetation and charming narrow streets packed with shops, galleries and restaurants. In the summer, the centre of Tenby is transformed into a 'cafe culture' centre, with no traffic allowed within the town walls. The restaurants and public houses take full advantage of this and you can relax wining and dining in the middle of Tudor Square, watching holidaymakers bustle to and fro.

About Tenby Town Walls
The Victorians put Tenby on the map as a holiday resort in the UK when the town became a popular destination as a health resort for wealthy tourists. With its grand Victorian pier stretching out into the bay, a bandstand perched on Castle Hill and bathing huts lining the beaches, the town drew tourists from all over the country. Sadly, the pier and beach huts are no longer here, but Tenby is still steeped in history, with cobbled streets and superb architecture to explore.
