Religious or not, it’s hard not to be moved by the grandeur of this building in its timeless setting. Choral evensong (usually 6pm) is often held in the quire, tucked behind the main body of the church - mid-week it’s a short service with some beautiful singing. It doesn’t happen every day so check the cathedral website or the notices outside the door.

Historic smallest City in the UK. Fabulous cathedral. Great restaurants and cafes for lunches/evening meals. Nice outdoor shops.

The pride and joy of Pembrokeshire and in fact Wales, is the beautiful St.David’s Cathedral. Hidden nestled in a small valley in the centre of St.David’s, you would hardly know it was there! Nowhere in Britain is there a more ancient cathedral settlement, for it reaches back fourteen centuries. An extract from Lonely Plant - Hidden in a hollow and behind high walls, St David's Cathedral is intentionally unassuming. The valley site was chosen in the vain hope that the church would be overlooked by Saxon raiders, but it was ransacked at least seven times. Yet once you pass through the gatehouse separating it from the town and its stone walls come into view, it's as imposing as any of its contemporaries. Built on the site of a 6th-century chapel, the building dates mainly from the 12th to the 14th centuries. Extensive works were carried out in the 19th century by Sir George Gilbert Scott (architect of London's Albert Memorial and St Pancras) to stabilise the building. The distinctive west front, with its four pointed towers of purple stone, dates from this period. The atmosphere inside is one of great antiquity. As you enter the nave, the oldest surviving part of the cathedral, the first things you'll notice are the sloping floor and the outward lean of the massive, purplish-grey pillars linked by semicircular Norman Romanesque arches, a result of subsidence. Above is a richly carved 16th-century oak ceiling, adorned with pendants. At the far end of the nave is a delicately carved 14th-century Gothic pulpitum (screen), which bears a statue of St David dressed as a medieval bishop, and contains the tomb of Bishop Henry de Gower (died 1347), for whom the Bishop's Palace was built.

Approximately a 40 minutes drive and you can discover another area with beautiful views and historic sites. St David's also has lots of watersports and coasteering activities. The cathedral makes this quaint little spot a city!

The St Davids Cathedral dates back to the 12th century and has since been a popular place of pilgrimage. St David chose this beautiful region as the site of his monastery in the 6th century and you will find his shrine inside... It is well worth setting aside a few hours to visit the cathedral, even if you don’t have an interest in history. There is an exhibition designed to introduce the pilgrim/visitor to the history and life of the Cathedral today including its daily worship.
