Approached from the Castle Beach and the Castle Hill, this part of Tenby is perhaps it's most attractive area. Overlooking the large sandy South beach and the surrounding panoramic views, this is a very relaxing venue. The small museum is worth a visit which gives...More

This is a lovely museum with helpful staff and a wide range of exhibits. The ticket price (around £5) is good value for two reasons. Firstly it is valid for 12 months and can be used at any time during this period. Why would you...More
