Milford Haven

The quiet town of Milford Haven is a port on the Cleddau River. It shows signs of its prosperous industrial past when it was a centre for the whaling industry, providing oil for lamps and whalebone for corsets.


When whaling declined, Milford Haven became a naval port, though nowadays another sort of oil - crude mineral oil - provides its main income.

This history is well illustrated in the excellent Maritime Museum which is situated in the harbour area (see link below for our report on this museum).

The river is a hive of activity - sailing craft, ferries to Ireland, naval craft and tankers - and Milford is worth a visit just for that.

The Torch Theatre, Milford Haven
Films and live plays can be seen at the Torch Theatre . Parking is
close by, and disabled visitors can park immediately outside.
Popular events sell out early, so book by phone before your visit
(bitter experience talking).
