Located on the site of a 6th century monastery built by St David, the patron saint of Wales, this stunning cathedral is perhaps the most impressive historic site to visit in Pembrokeshire. Construction on the current cathedral dates back to the 12th century and is a fine example of Norman architecture.
Because of the presence of the cathedral, the town of St David’s is actually classed as a city, despite a population of just over 1600!
Entry to the cathedral is free of charge, however, donations are recommended. Photography is allowed as long as you’re not using a tripod, in which case a charge of £10 is applicable.
Alongside the cathedral are the runs of Bishop’s Palace, an impressive medieval structure which is now maintained by CADW and well worth a visit if you’re already in St Davids.
