What must I see in Tenby?

Before it became a major resort in the 19th century, Tenby was most famous as a fortress. The modern town is still clustered around the ruins of the castle, which guarded the harbour after the Norman Conquest. Nowadays, it's not much more than a tower - but there are plenty of stories to hear about Civil War sieges, and captures by heroic Welsh rebels. Elsewhere in Tenby, the Museum & Art Gallery is a must-visit, gathering local fossil finds, and absorbing exhibits about piracy and naval battles. Tenby Beach is a magnet for visitors, too, and with good reason. Few resorts can match its fine sand and swimming conditions. But if you want wilder beach adventures, Barafundle and Broadhaven are nearby, and offer some of the most attractive views in the whole country. Then there are regional attractions - and plenty of them. From Dylan Thomas' home at Laugharne, to the fun available at Heatherton World of Activities, southern Pembrokeshire is a real goldmine for holidaymakers. You can get away from it all, or dive into family theme parks. Either way, being bored won't be a problem.

Where should I stay in Tenby?

When booking premium or cheap hotels in Tenby, the seafront can't be overlooked, and there are a few areas to choose from. North Beach is perfect for people who want to get onto the sand as early as possible, but it's a few hundred metres walk from the town centre. If you want to have easy access to local restaurants and pubs, the centre of Tenby is going to fit the bill. Situated at the south end of the beach, it includes the castle headland, along with Castle Beach - a lovely smaller cove which tends to be overlooked by some visitors. South Beach is quieter, but is still a great place to hunt for hotel deals. With Tenby's golf course in the area, and a beach that's almost as popular as North Beach, it will suit most vacationers. Saundersfoot is an option, too. Located a couple of miles north of Tenby proper, it's a smaller, less busy resort, with a similarly sandy beach. Finally, if you plan to explore the wider region by car from your hotel Tenby has some appealing western suburbs. You can still be 5 minutes' drive from the town, but have faster escape routes to beaches and adventure parks. In any case, there's going to be somewhere to suit your needs.
