St Davids in Pembrokeshire is the smallest city in the UK with a cathedral, lying on the River Alun. It is the resting place of Saint David, Wales's patron saint, and named after him. St Davids was given city status in the 12th century.
There is plenty to see and do in St Davids, including the city and cathedral as well as access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. Nearby is Whitesands Bay, a curving mile-long, west-facing, Blue Flag, sandy beach – widely considered to be one of the best in the country. Whitesands is sheltered by Ramsey Island and is perfect for surfers or paddlers alike.
For fantastic views, sure-footed walkers can head for the summit of Carn Llidi, one of the finest hills in Pembrokeshire.
