Things to do in Tenby: Warpool Court Hotel’s Peter Trier Talks Treasures
“Holidays in Wales wouldn’t be complete without a stop in lovely Tenby,” says Warpool Court Hotel owner Peter Trier. “It’s often referred to as one of the prettiest towns you’ll ever visit and is a favourite with holidaymakers in Pembrokeshire.”
Tenby is immediately recognisable by its cobbled old streets and rows of multi-coloured houses nestled above the beach, with stunning views overlooking the coastline. Not only is the town itself lovely, it’s surrounded by no less than 4 beaches - South Beach, Castle Beach, Harbour Beach and North Beach. These have been awarded Blue Flag status, so you know they’re clean with excellent water quality. You can spend an entire day just on the beaches here. Find the perfect patch of sand to sit and watch the sunrise, sunbathe or enjoy one of Pembrokeshire’s famously beautiful sunsets.
Tenby town offers unprecedented access to dozens of attractions. The only problem can be deciding which to choose from first! You can:
