St Davids City
St Davids in Pembrokeshire is a city unlike any other. Officially holding the title of the UK's smallest city, with a population just over 1,750, St Davids packs a powerful punch when it comes to charm, history, and natural beauty.
The crown jewel of St Davids is undoubtedly its magnificent cathedral, the ruins of the medieval Bishop's Palace and the haunting beauty of the St Davids Priory.
St Davids is much more than just a religious centre. Quaint streets lined with colourful houses, independent shops, and cosy cafes invite you to wander and soak in the city's unique atmosphere. Sample local delicacies like Welsh cakes and bara brith, or savour fresh seafood caught straight from the Irish Sea.
The city's location on the dramatic St Davids Peninsula makes it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Hike to the summit of Carn Lidi for panoramic views of the coastline, kayak through the sheltered waters of Whitesands Bay, or try your hand at surfing or coasteering.
