Breathe in and unwind – you’ve made it to Pembrokeshire, one of the UK’s most tranquil and enriching destinations. Tucked away on Wales’ windswept south-western coast, Pembrokeshire is a land of rolling meadows and heathland, giving way to stunning bays, beaches, and coves which form the UK’s only coastal national park – such is the beauty and natural significance of the region.
One of the most popular coastal towns in the county is Tenby, and it’s here where you’ll find The Imperial Tenby Hotel, a historic hotel occupying a unique position above the sands of Tenby’s popular beachfront, giving you an exceptional base for exploring the area. Whether you’re here to relax or ramble the coastal paths, The Imperial Tenby Hotel provides the perfect base for experiencing the delights of Pembrokeshire.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park inspired the locations for a host of well-known blockbusters, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. One of the best ways to explore is via the Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus Service, which gives keen ramblers a great way to access remote walking trails whilst also providing wonderful sightseeing opportunities.
Photographers, wildlife fanatics, and nature lovers will relish a visit to Skomer Island, where all manner of rare bird species cling to the cliffs above the Atlantic swell. One of the island’s most beloved winged visitors is the puffin, which can be spotted between April and August each year. During the short journey to Skomer, be sure to keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins — often seen frolicking off shore.
