5 things to do with kids on the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales #Wales #Pembrokeshire
Shaped by the sea, the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast offers a host of family fun both in and out of the water. Here are five things your kids will love doing in one of the most beautiful corners of the UK.
1: Explore Britain’s smallest city
There’s not a lot to Saint Davids. It is the UK’s smallest city in terms of both size and population and only has its city status thanks to the spectacular cathedral, situated down in a hollow, built on the site of a monastery first founded in the 6th Century.
What there is, however, is perfectly formed. The ‘city’ is centred around a pretty square that hosts a weekly market and is surrounded by a few pubs, craft galleries and tea shops.
Join the queue at Gianni’s ice cream parlour for huge scoops of organic ice-cream in a range of decadent flavours, try an Oggie at the pop-up stall outside the Coach House (the Welsh equivalent of the Cornish pastie, reputedly served to the labourers who built the cathedral) or watch the guys at Dusty Knuckles prepare your soughdough pizza, consistently rated as amongst the best in the country.
If the weather is unfriendly, check out the Bug Farm, just out of town on the road towards Fishguard. Based on a 100-acre property, the Bug Farm features both indoor and outdoor exhibits that showcase bugs and what they do for us. For a real treat, drop by the farm’s Grub Kitchen, the UK’s first edible insect café/restaurant, founded by award-winning chef Andy Holcroft. Delicious edible insect dishes include the bug burger, GFC (Grub Fried Chicken), mealworm humus with freshly baked flatbread, and cricket cookies.
