St David's

What strikes the visitor when entering St David's is that the tourists are dressed in anoraks and wooly hats. This is walking and boating country and it gives the impression of being a Lake District town.

St David's is a centre for diving, riding, cycling and all sort of boating. From nearby bays, boats travel to (and around) the islands where exotic birds, seals and dolphins can be seen.

St David's boasts that it is the smallest city in Britain, and the 12th century cathedral and its grounds are quite beautiful. Each year in May and June the cathedral has a nine day festival of classical music.

The whole family will enjoy Oceanarium, described as the biggest sea aquarium in west Wales. It features large fish in large tanks, with opportunities for youngsters to handle sea creatures under supervision.

Other St David's attractions in include several tea shops (speciality Welsh cream teas) and Whitesands Bay, a little to the east, which has a large expanse of sandy beach.
