This popular and busy tourist resort is an historic walled town. Tenby has shops, history and miles of sandy beaches. The castle and museum are worth a visit, as is the lifeboat station.

Tenby's roads are very narrow and it is difficult to park anywhere except the designated car parks which are large but can fill up rapidly in the summer. In the summer there is a total ban on vehicles within the walled town, but a frequent free bus takes visitors from the car parks to the harbour.

The Tenby Spectacular is held in mid-summer and comprises a number of events and displays as well as fireworks.

On the outskirts of Tenby is the Silent World aquarium. Located in a disused church, the aquarium features reptiles as well as fish, and has a cafe and souvenir shop upstairs.

Several boats take visitors to (or around) the

beautiful and peaceful Caldey Island, and along the coast.

Events are held at the De Valence Pavilion, and there is a small cinema. Both are in the town centre. Tenby Leisure Centre, which includes an indoor swimming pool, is on the road to Pembroke.

New Year's Eve is a particularly interesting time as people from all over south Wales descend on Tenby, many in fancy dress.
