Superb, wanted to go after seeing Gavin and Stacey but heard that it had a dump of a Butlins but hey... it got tore down and the place is LUSH, excellent beach, funfair, golf, gluten free fish bar on sea front. 100% recommend oh and only £4 to park all day, what more could you ask for.

Great city and great shops. Best part of the day was visiting Cardiff Bay with lovely views and great restaurants on the waterfront. Recommend the boat tour of the bay which is great for views and general information about the area.

Beautiful city and absolutely stunning shopping centre. Castle looked brilliant but ran out of time to go.

Got the train from Bridge-end whilst staying at Trecco Bay. A good day out, visited the castle and enjoyed the shopping.

For a great place to eat, try Salt House on the Square. We found it by chance after driving to find a nice pub to eat in for 4 adults and one infant. Salt House offers fantastic home cooked food at great prices and a friendly atmosphere. The pork belly and steaks in particular where delicious. Well recommended! It is not far from the beach/promenade and has parking close by. Can even walk there.

We visited Tenby whilst staying at Pendine Sands Holiday Park, what a beautiful town! Lovely beach, plenty of gift shops and places of interest, good day had by all.

Added by M Kelly on 17/09/2011 16:51:43

A great place to visit. Lots of shops and tourist aimed shops. It is laid out with lots of side roads and plenty of places to eat with friendly staff. A must see.

Added by Mrs Gibson on 08/10/2011 08:38:32

Made the mistake of going in to Tenby on Saturday night for a meal. The town was full of stag and hen parties, a lot of drunken people about and had to witness someone being ill from too much drink. Due to this we did not stay for a meal. Very disappointed.
