Tenby

UK travel information

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.

 

Tenby hotels



The pretty harbour and picturesque buildings offer much to see and do while there are many inns and cafes that are worth a visit, and Tenby also has a good selection of shops, but it is the stunning beaches that make this one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Wales.

Tenby Museum & Art Gallery, Castle Hill, Tenby SA70 7BP (01834) 842809
Renowned as the oldest independent museum in Wales, Tenby’s Museum and Art Gallery was founded in 1878.
Permanent exhibits are displayed in five main galleries and include Pembrokeshire’s archaeological and geological history, maritime and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s heritage, and a mock pirate’s cell. Open during the spring, summer and autumn; Tenby Museum & Art Gallery is somewhere to remember.

Manor House Wild Animal Park, St Florence, Tenby SA70 8RJ (01646) 651201
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.
