We're planning to go to Pembrokeshire for a week in early July. Can anyone recommend places to go, sights to see etc?

Must get Pembrokeshire icon ...

Took The Teen there when he was small - it is picturesque but not very exciting in my view. Well, Mildford Haven isn't picturesque or interesting so I would not bother with it. There is (or at least was) very little to do in Pembrokeshire if the weather is rubbish as I was when we went. But if it is nice, the coastal path might suit you, and the beach at St David's is great ans sufficiently out of the way not to get very busy. In fact, DO visit St David's, as it is this teeny tiny city (aka village) with a little cathedral, very historical and unusual, just your/adaese's kind of thing.

Suppose there might be some stately homes/churches/craft workshops that would be of interest to you (generally or specifically for if it rains). I do not know of any off hand but I suspect Visit Pembrokeshire (or whatever it calls itself) will be able to oblige.

There was an entire Taruithorn holiday there in 1997. We hired a castle (Roch Castle), which was nice. I can remember the odd castle visit, a bit of archery and off-road karting with added manure. Those people who were into that sort of thing went to beaches and walked over hills and stuff too.

We did indeed and also went to the Preseli Mountains which had some prehistoric monuments, and are supposed to be the source for some of the Stonehenge stone - quite interesting.

It must be 15 years or so since I went to Pembrokeshire.

St Davids is definitely worth visiting. Tenby is a nice traditional seaside resort kind of place, and used to have a local group of ice-cream parlours that made the most wonderful creations.

I have a friend whose parents retired to the area and who still visits regularly, I could ask her if she had any other suggestions.

(And, yes, please, but only if you get chance; it's not worth you / her going out of the way for this.)

I was on a walking holiday there some years ago; chiefly doing bits of the Coast Path.
Tenby proved a very good base, both nice to saty in and well-connected for public transport.

St. Davids is quite a haul from there, but I agree, worth visiting.

Piece of Tolkien trivia: The southern start/end point of the Coast Path is called Amroth... :-)
