Visiting the smallest city in Great Britain - St Davids
St Davids is named after the patron saint of Wales, Saint David. St Davids is the smallest city in Britain with a population of just over 1,600. City status was awarded in 1995 although the roots of St Davids go back to the 4th century when St David himself lived. St Davids was designated as a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 1972.
Getting there can be directly from Haverfordwest on the A487 main road or taking our coastal road which would be my recommendation. This route starts at the seaside village of Broad Haven, through Nolton Haven and Druidston Haven, all beautiful bays and well worth a stopping for a while. Going on from there and with lots of views of St Brides Bay you come into Newgale. A fantastic beach very popular for surfing, bathing and another opportunity to stop and explore. Travel on to the beautiful village of Solva with its pretty little Harbour and several excellent pubs, restaurant and craft shops. From here, continue into St Davids where the main car park is located on your left as you enter the city and hosts a purpose built Tourist Information Centre offering a huge choice of attractions and things to do for another day. Walk through the main street of the smallest city in Great Britain to the Cathedral and be impressed!
