Pembroke Mini Guide
What can you Tell me About Pembroke?
It’s a town that’s full of history, myth and magic, linked by some possibly to King Arthur and definitely to Henry VII, close to the haunts of St David, the Welsh patron saint and not far away from the home of Wales’ greatest poet and author, Dylan Thomas. It’s a bustling market town and a popular centre for tourism to the Pembrokeshire coast.
How Easy is it to get to Pembroke?
The nearest major airports to Pembroke are Cardiff Airport
and Bristol Airport
which have a wide range of flights to European destinations. Cardiff airport is particularly useful as it’s twenty miles west of the city and so closer to Pembroke which can be reached in under an hour. Bristol has a wider range of flights but is a further hour away. If you don’t want the drive from the airport, there’s a direct rail line from Bristol, passing through Cardiff on the way to Pembroke from where you can hire a car.
What can I do in and Around Pembroke?
Pembroke Castle is a great place to spend the day. It’s a traditional castle and has many features that kids love to explore. There’s a detailed exhibition telling you all about its history and influence on the region. For a general idea of what Pembroke has to offer, there’s a guided tour of the town which passes by many of its medieval buildings. About an hour in length, you can pay for a guide or use the booklet that’s available from the library or tourist information. Out of Pembroke you have the dramatic Pembrokeshire coast as well as the historic town of St Davids. Laugharne, the home of Dylan Thomas isn’t far away either.
