Travel Tips for Tenby

Fish and Chips

by HORSCHECK

Britain's most popular hot take away meal is Fish and Chips. This tasty combination is usually eaten with salt and vinegar; in Scotland sometimes with a special brown sauce. The most popular fish is Cod, followed by Haddock and Plaice. Prices are about 1 GBP for the chips and about 2,50 GBP for the fish.

Tenby Castle

by Balam

Tenby has seen many changes since the Normans Arrived in the late 11th Century when impressed by the fertility of the land of Pembrokeshire and realising the strategic importance of Pembroke in any plans of subjugating the region the Town became their headquarters. The Welsh fortress at Nearby Tenby was soon captured and by the mid 12th century a primitive castle had been constructed on Castle Hill, garrisoned by English and French troops. After some skirmishes with the Welsh forces the town was attacked and ransacked in 1187 by welsh troops led by Maelgwyn ap Rhys and again In 1260 when it suffered its last battering at Welsh hands and Llewelyn ap Gruffydd slaughted the garrison and the residents in protest against the Norman occupation of Wales.

After the destruction of the town the Earls of Pembroke realised that the defences of Tenby were inadequate and as the town played an important part in controlling the south It was decided to increase the towns defences so that the whole town would be secure behind a impregnable wall with towers and gateways and the castle with its cliff top location would form another defensive bulwark.

Sadly there is not much remaining of The castle but it is still worth visiting just for the magnificent views of the town and cliffs. Hopefully if you visit it will not be Raining or if it is then hopefully not quite as hard as it was when i went.

Castle Hill & Gardens

by Myfanwe

This is a lovely area for a stroll or a picnic on a Summers day. As you walk up to the hill you'll pass St Catherines Fort on you right hand side and will have some great views of Caldey Island in the distance. There are plenty of benches in this area for you to take in your surroundings. There is a little Museum half way up and guess what? as the name suggests, at the top of the hill you will find the remains of one of the towers of Tenby Castle.

Tenby - Pearl of Pembrokeshire

by HORSCHECK


In August 1998 I stayed a couple of days in Tenby to explore the beauties of Pembrokeshire at the south coast of Wales.

Tenby is a popular seaside resort with 4 beaches and a magnificent view of the bay. The picturesque old town with its narrow medieval streets and old Georgian houses is a great place to wander. Many historic buildings are worth seeing, among them is St. Mary's church and the town gate Five Arches.

Tenby can be used as a base for trips to other nice places in Pembrokeshire, such as Manobier, Saundersfoot, Pembroke or Milford Haven.
