You’ll understand the appeal of this little town as soon as you set eyes on it. A colourful rainbow of houses are scattered amongst its hills and cliffs, surrounding a charming harbour.
Tenby is notable for being one of the few remaining walled towns in Britain. Tenby didn’t become popular with tourists until the Victorians began flocking here, but ever since then it has remained one of the country’s top destinations.
Keep an eye out for the old, historic buildings, which are scattered throughout the town. These include the Tudor Merchant’s House, which is in the care of the National Trust. The interior is an accurate recreation of a 15th century home, which is sometimes attended by staff in full Tudor costume! Another old building that’s hard to miss is Tenby Castle. It stands on a hilltop that sticks out towards the sea, interrupting the town’s main beaches.
