Tenby Travel Guide: 96 reviews and 249 photos

In August 1998 I stayed a few days in Tenby and explored the beauties of Pembrokeshire in the south eastern corner 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.

    Looks live a lovely place! Let's see if we'll make it to Tenby on our tour through Wales. And I really have to get that book from Bill Bryson, it sounds very interesting!

    I wrote the Snowdonia page when I was very, very sad: it made me a bit poetic about a past life. I loved living there....hope you manage to visit one day. Superb place. J
