The Pembrokeshire National Park is a coastal national park on the south west coast of Wales in the county of Pembrokeshire. It is a very interesting area with a varied industrial and social history and remains of this can be seen all the way along the spectacular coastline in the form of Lime Kilns, old Copper mines, and religious sites.

Pembrokeshire boasts the smallest city in the UK called St Davids and at the last census had only 2,000 residents, which is compared to Pembrokeshire's largest village which has a population exceeding 2,500!

There is also a very visible religious history and current influence in Pembrokeshire with shrines and holy sites such as St Non's Well. She was the mother of St David and her well was believed to heal eye ailments. The well is next to the birthplace of St David (the patron saint of Wales) who was supposedly born in a terrible storm! Perhaps the most impressive religious site is St Davids Cathedral which was hidden from view of the shore to protect it from marauding vikings and was seen as one of the most difficult and important pilgrimages as it was difficult over land or sea! It was said that three visits to St Davids Cathedral was equal to a trip to Rome.

Nowadays such a pilgrimage is much easier and also just plain enjoyable as Pembrokeshire has some of the most fantastic coastal scenery and wildlife in the UK.

In Pembrokeshire we have a self-guided for North Pembrokeshire and also for South Pembrokeshire. There is also a day-pack hike for the Pembrokeshire section of the Wales Coast Path.
