St. David's Travel Guide

St. David's

Despite its minuscule size, this community of fewer than 1,800 people isn’t a village or a town—it's actually Britain's smallest city. Historically, little St. David's has punched above its weight due to the presence of St. David's Cathedral, the resting place of the patron saint of Wales and once a major destination for pilgrims. These days, visitors with time on their hands might want to consider approaching the city via the Wales Coast Path, around the St. David's headland from St. Justinian to Caerfai Bay. In May and June the town's hedgerows and coastal paths are ablaze with wildflowers. The visitor center has a small collection of art and artifacts drawn from the collection at the National Museum of Wales.
