Haverfordwest

Haverfordwest is a town which has experienced periods of boom and bust resulting from prosperous trading, wars and plagues and through it all has remained a town worthy of visits by royalty & celebrity.

 

Haverfordwest remains the county town of Pembrokeshire, with a Town Mayor, who also holds the title of Admiral of the Port, plus a Town Sheriff-one of only fifteen City & Town Sheriffs in England & Wales. Indeed one of only two in Wales.

 

Haverfordwest is not only a town but a county in its own right. It grew up under the shadow of a  Flemish Castle  to become Pembrokeshire’s administrative centre, encompassing a thriving market town with interesting shops run by local retailers displaying wonderful gifts from our locale alongside other items of interest.

The town hosts an award winning farmers market, a wide range of restaurants and cafes, supermarkets, public houses and hotels

Visitors to Haverfordwest are never far from beaches with golden sands or pebbles or impressive cliffs.

 

Alternatively there are riverside walks in town

 

Or for those interested in history there is the historic castle, churches and buildings in town. While monoliths, megaliths, castles, historical buildings and ruins abound in nearby countryside .St David’s cathedral is merely half an hour away.
