“ ...Say...how far is it to this same blessed Milford; and, by the way, tell me how Wales was made so happy As t’ inherit such a haven”
Cymbeline, Act 111, Scene ii. William Shakespeare.
Milford Haven - Discover Pembrokeshire Milford Haven Cruise Port
Pembrokeshire, the county of enchantment, is situated at the western tip of Wales and boasts the UK’s only Coastal National Park. Wildlife sanctuaries and nature reserves line the coast with islands such as Skomer and Skokholm, named by our 9th century Viking visitors and which are home to tens of thousands of shearwaters, puffins and a host of other fascinating species. Steeped in history, Pembrokeshire is home to numerous fortifications, including the spectacular Pembroke Castle, founded in 1093, and one of the largest and best preserved castles in South Wales and birthplace of Henry Tudor Vll, founder of the Tudor dynasty.
Pembrokeshire boasts the smallest city in Great Britain, St Davids. Its beautiful 12th century cathedral is a magnificent shrine to Wales’ patron saint. A pope once declared that two pilgrimages to St Davids were equal to one to Rome and three were equal to one to Jerusalem.
As one of the deepest natural harbours in the world, set within the UK’s only coastal National Park and one of the UK’s prime tourist destinations, there could be no better port of call for cruise ships than the Milford Haven Waterway.
