The remarkable seaside town of Tenby in Pembrokeshire, Wales, offers much of interest to the historian and the casual visitor for it is replete with some interesting and unique attributes.
Most interesting of all are the well preserved 13th century town walls, complete with a notable barbican gatehouse, and an impressive Tudor merchant’s house. Just offshore is Caldey Island, a noted monastic settlement that can be visited by boat at high tide, while the town itself benefits from the improvements made during the Georgian and Victorian eras when the town was particularly popular.

Set in 52 acres of Pembrokeshire Parkland and founded by TV presenter, Anna Ryder-Richardson; Manor House Wild Animal Park has something for everyone.
Unlike other zoos, Manor House allows visitors to ‘mingle’ with its residents. The ‘Lemur Walkthrough’, for example, is almost as good as being in Madagascar itself; while the ‘Wallaby Walkthrough’ will have you jumping for joy.
