Things to Do

A week in Pembrokeshire is nowhere near long enough to explore all it has to offer or take part in all the activities available but it is a good time to start.

Marine life abounds – seals, dolphins and porpoises and sea birds – puffins, razorbills, guillemots and lots more, come and go with the seasons. Islands off the coast provide ideal habitats and there are many different boat trips to take you on wild life spotting adventures.

There are a multitude of activity providers to facilitate all manner of water sports – coasteering, surfing and kayaking to name but a few.

The 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path offers endless opportunity for walking and is the only way to reach some of the stunning coast meaning that you will often have little beaches and coves all to yourself when you arrive.

Inland there are ancient woodlands and nature reserves to explore. There are steep sided valleys with rushing streams, the wild open spaces of the Preseli Hills and the spectacular wild flowers for which Pembrokeshire is renown.

There are prehistoric sites and standing stones and hill forts. The Preselis are the home of the Preseli bluestone which has been discovered to be part of the building material for Stonehenge, 140 miles away in England.

Castell Henllys is an iron age village reconstructed on its original foundations where you can have guided tours and see what it was like to live all those years ago.

There are many castles, gardens, museums and galleries to visit. St Davids is the smallest city in the UK and there you will find Oriel y Parc where you can get all the inspiration and information you need to begin exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
