North Pembrokeshire Tours is a recent sustainable initiative by North Pembrokeshire Trade and Tourism Ltd., a not-for-profit business association. Their mission aims to enable more people to enjoy this precious area without spoiling it. The best way to explore and engage with this outstanding place is in small groups of between six and fifteen people. In North Pembrokeshire narrow roads lead visitors to discover unique historic gems. The Last Invasion of Britain is one of them. Clients will be in the hands of passionate local people and will explore the local area of Fishguard, learn about the last invasion of mainland Britain and more. They will hear of Viking stories, ideas about the origin of the Stonehenge Bluestone and the industrial past of Fishguard while enjoying the natural beauty of the North Pembrokeshire coastline.
North Pembrokeshire Tours is keen on the preservation of the local culture and attractions with a particular focus on small group tours. Clients can explore Neolithic stones, impressive forts, ancient ruins, a bronze age village and a Norman Castle: ‘Ancient Pembrokeshire’ and ‘Delightful St Dogmaels’ minibus tours take visitors back in time to different historic ages in just half a day.
For adventure seekers, North Pembrokeshire Tours also offer a boat trip from Fishguard Harbour to Strumble Head lighthouse. The impressive geology and wildlife will please visitors in a 1.5hr journey of great fun. Dolphins, porpoises, seals and a wide range of birds can be spotted whilst enjoying the special coastline of North Pembrokeshire. The trip also reveals the landing place at Carregwastad of the 1797 French Invasion.
James Parkin: Director of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
North Pembrokeshire is an important and precious part of our Coastal National Park. The hills and coast refresh the soul, mind and body of visitors and residents. North Pembrokeshire Tours has developed an important way of carefully managing visitor numbers by inviting small groups to enjoy these qualities as well as the many historic features of this ancient landscape. The small towns of the area provide many places to stay, eat and find entertainment.”
North Pembrokeshire has been described “like Cornwall without the people”, where ancient history meets the lone walker and the discerning visitor’s search for wellbeing is satisfied, whether in a busier place or standing alone on a rocky outcrop. This is the land for those who seek ‘to get away from it all’, and are refreshed by the space, the hills, the valleys and the beaches. Along their way, city escapers will encounter the friendliness of local people. The small towns and hamlets provide a warm welcome with a special culture and frequent artistic and musical experiences. Opportunities for adventure on the sea or on horseback await discovery. Walking is the most popular way of enjoying the area with the world-famous coast path or on the many rocky peaks where soul and body can unwind.
