Tenby is a walled town in Pembrokeshire, steeped in ancient history and has been a popular holiday destination for over 200 years.
Tenby has a range of gift (and seaside shops) located near the famous Five Arches, which form part of Tenby’s impressive medieval walls, which once formed part of the walled town. Parking can be found opposite the Five Arches.
Tenby is a small seaside town which can be best seen just by walking around, as most of the town has small streets or is pedestrianized.
You will also find some great shops and restaurants.
This Manor House has been restored to its 1500 heyday and is an excellent example of a three-storey town house. A wealthy Tudor merchant once lived and worked in the Manor House.
Tenby Shops - from great small boutiques and major branded shops, to a useful supermarket and the Royal-Chartered indoor market in the center of town, you'll find everything you need within easy walking distance.
Tenby Harbour - Tenby's picturesque harbour (one of the most photographed images of Tenby), is built into a corner on North Beach - just look at the pretty painted houses on the street above. The harbour is located between the old medieval walled town and Castle Hill.
A small sandy beach is located at the harbour wall and is perfect for very young children to have fun and play on under adult supervision.
Tenby Castle - of which only a small tower remains, is perched on top of Castle Hill. Tenby's town walls, however, are remarkably complete - these enclose the old town with all it's quaint streets and court yards.
