Getting Around Wales
If you like to explore Pembrokeshire by public transport I recommend to take a copy of "Getting Around Wales (Crwydro Cymru)". It provides timetable infomation about rail services, all kind of bus and coach services and air services from Cardiff Airport.
The timetable book is published by "Southern Vectis" and it is available at the Tourist Information.
Carew castle - an excursion
A beautiful place. If you visit on a quiet day out of season, as we did, it still has the atmosphere of this old print. I included Carew Castle here as it makes a very good excursion from Tenby.
Castle history goes back 2000 years, and you can see the ruins of Norman fortifications and of an Elizabethan wing. It overlooks a huge millpond, and you will find C11th Celtic Cross, and a restored tidal mill. The area is is great for walks and picnics.
Open daily 10 am - 5 pm, March 22nd - End October 2005
Entry as of Spring 2005-
Adult Castle & Mill £3.00
Concessions Castle & Mill £2.00
Family (2 adult & 3 concessions) Castle & Mill £8.00
An unknown Norman built the first Castle here. The castle dates from 1153 but the visible ruins on the cliff above the sea are from later additions. Over the years the 13th Century Town Walls took over as the main defence of Tenby. On the top of Castle Hill you can see the only remaining Castle Tower.
Tenby - tenderly town in Wales
"A coastal small town"
The day when the tour bus reached a hilly stop, I was captured in awe by the breathtaking beautiful bay views there, as boats moored by the bay and a white stretch of sandy beach just lay before my eyes. This is Tenby, a little coastal town in west of Wales
"Take a leisurely walk in Tenby"
I couldn't help taking a half hour walk around this lovely town, first up the northern bay where a longer stretch of white sandy beach reach far beyond the blue sky. The autumn sun was so warm there, even though the wind was strong in the open. Soon I came to a castle ruin, now turned into a classy hotel, and walked my way to the top of a small promotory stretching out into the sea, taking in a panoramic view of low houses lining up the hilly coast there.
"A summer resort too"
The streets were quiet when I was there in late October, and the hotels up the knoll were not full either. But I bet in summer time, this place should be packed with holiday seeking people as it's such a perfect summer resort for this beautiful town.
