The charm of St Davids
lies in the fact that it is a small attractive
village now with full city status.
Visitors flock to St Davids as they did in the Middle Ages when it was a place of pilgrimage.
The Cathedral is still the major object of attraction.
Nearby Whitesands Bay is a regular winner of the prestigious European Blue Flag award.
The Cathedral and ruins of the once magnificent Bishop's Palace are marvels of medieval architecture and the highlight of every summer is St David's Cathedral Festival held in May - an annual celebration of classical music and the chance to see the most historic and revered building in Wales.
The Oriel y Parc Gallery within The National Park visitor centre is used to display national treasures, including the works of Graham Sutherland, a resident of Pembrokeshire for much of his life. The gallery is open all year and is free of charge. There is also a cafe on site and lots of information for visitors.
For those seeking activities, there are opportunities for coasteering or adventure boat trips to the offshore islands to see magnificent sea-bird colonies, seals, whales and dolphins. Just outside the city is an excellent 9-hole links golf course.
