What to do in Tenby

About Tenby

Tenby was invaded and colonized by the Normans in the 11th century. However, it was not until the Victorian Age that it soared in popularity, attracting wealthy European travellers. Over the years, Tenby remained as elegant as ever, having resisted unbridled commercialization. Visitors flock to hotels in Tenby to enjoy the glorious sunshine, cultural attractions, and outdoor activities.

Tenby has a unique atmosphere that is sure to make your holiday memorable. Take a selfie by the attractive Tenby Mural on Market Hall. Painted by contemporary artist Eric Bradforth, this elegant masterpiece beautifully depicts the town's colourful history. Nearby your hotel in Tenby, typical Welsh cuisine awaits at Plantagenet House, nestled in the town's oldest building, which also contains an enormous medieval Flemish chimney. In the summer, you can enjoy great concerts at the Victorian Bandstand on Castle Hill, facing the harbour.

Nature lovers should definitely walk the well-marked coastal path that runs through the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Miles of azure coast and dramatic cliffs await you here. The cliff-backed Tenby Beach is a favourite with families, as well as anyone who fancies a round of canoeing and angling. Nearby, meet the lovely gibbons, Sumatran tigers, wallabies, and red panda sisters at Manor Wildlife Park. You won't get this close to wild animals anywhere else.

What to see in Tenby

Start out at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery, housed inside the renovated buildings of Tenby Castle. Founded in 1878, the museum displays fine exhibits on South Pembrokeshire's maritime, social, and archaeological history. Next, get an idea of how well-heeled Tudor families lived back their day by visiting Tenby's oldest unaltered building, the Tudor Merchant's House.

Dating back to the 13th century, St. Mary's Church has three naves and houses the tomb of Robert Recorde, the mathematician who invented the equals sign (=). For further spiritual inspiration, take the ferry to the holy island of Caldey, inhabited by Cistercian monks who have lived on the island in prayer and solitude for centuries. Caldey's cliff side walks, friendly grey seals, and bluebell woods are a photographer's dream.
