The 12th century St Davids Cathedral, built on the site of a much older religious buildings, is the reason for little St Davids’ outsize city status.

Here you can learn about the history of St Davids, visit the impressive Treasury collection and enjoy home-cooked and locally-sourced food at The Refectory.
Located in the National Park Information Centre, Oriel y Parc Gallery features exhibitions by Pembrokeshire artists as well as a Class A Landscape Gallery, exhibiting art and artefacts from the collections of Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales, often featuring the work of Graham Sutherland.

Tucked away, in the smallest city in the UK, is a farm quite unlike any other. Dedicated to all things bugs, The Bug Farm is a visitor attraction that offers a fantastic experience for families, adults and groups. Since opening its doors in 2015, The Bug Farm has received numerous awards and is a Visit Wales Quality Assured visitor attraction. Come and see for yourself!
The Bug Farm is based on 100 acres of Pembrokeshire’s finest countryside. With indoor and outdoor exhibits, we hope to showcase the wonders of bugs and what they do for us. Although we don’t always realise it, bugs have a vital role in modern society. They guide modern technology; inspire art; benefit our gardens; but, perhaps most importantly, they form the foundation to our food chains. Bugs are integral to farming and part of our mission is to raise awareness of ‘sustainable agriculture’: producing enough food to feed a growing population and looking after wildlife at the same time.

Meet & greet at their St Davids High Street ‘Patagonia’ store before heading out for awesome adventures.
