Welsh Cultural Breaks
Human history is writ bold across the Pembrokeshire landscape, with castles, historic homes and prehistoric relics waiting to whisper their tales to you:
At Fishguard, find out why the last invasion of Britain was short-lived; at Pembroke, visit the castle birthplace of the Tudor dynasty; in Milford Haven, take a stroll around the marina and see the maritime heritage built around one of the deepest natural harbours in the world; or retrace the pilgrims’ steps to the tiny city of St. Davids and its imposing, surprising cathedral.
The Landsker line - once a tangible divide between Welsh and non-Welsh communities - is now more symbolic than practical, but still marked by an impressive line of fortifications. Trace its route via the castles at Roch, Llawhaden and Narberth out to Laugharne.
The abundance of historic buildings provides venues for cultural events such as open air theatre productions and medieval re-enactments. The castles at Carew and Pembroke regularly hold events, archaeology talks and tours. Prehistoric settlement sites in the county include a number of standing stones and the reconstructed iron age fort at Castell Henllys.
Pembrokeshire is also a great place to be inspired: our wild landscape has always attracted artists, from the unknown hands which carved out early celtic art, to highly regarded painters such as Augustus John and Graham Sutherland. Bring your paints, your camera or your credit card!
