St. David’s, Wales, is located in northwest Wales. It is on a peninsula that juts out into the Irish Sea. It is an hour’s walk from Whitesands Bay, where St. Patrick is purported to have left from to go to Ireland. The town is small, but has a lot of character.

 

If you are passing through or just making your way along the Coastal Path, it needs to be a destination. Grab breakfast at the Pebbles Yard Gallery and Espresso Bar. Tea and a scone will cost you around $8.

 

St. David’s is the smallest city in the United Kingdom and the resting place of St. David, the patron saint of Wales. There is a beautiful cathedral just down the street from Pebbles Yard that is a must-see. It is free to enter, but before taking pictures you will need to purchase a photo license for about $2.50. On the same grounds as the Cathedral there are the Medieval ruins of the Bishops Palace, striking and an adult admission will cost around $5.50. Walk around this tiny city and get a sense of its scale.

 

For lunch, stop at the Meadows and order the cawl, or the avocado on sourdough. Either of these, along with a coffee, will cost about $15. If you can, walk to the coast for an afternoon. It is only about an hour’s walk outside of town and the views are beautiful and free!

 

Walk back into town and head to the Bishops. There might be live music playing around the corner, but even if there isn’t this pleasant pub is full of lovely people and perfectly good pub food. An entrée and two beers will cost around $25. So order the fish and chips, drink a few beers and laze the evening away.
