“This trip was amazing in every way. From the arrival to the departure, nothing was left out. Personalized attention and superb guides. Bottom line: Kensington Tours is definitely the best way to travel.”
With it's relatively small population, it might not seem like Pembroke would stand out during a tour of Wales, but the picturesque town has plenty to offer. The town's beautiful views, a quaint charm and centuries-old buildings have drawn visitors for years, and you should make a point to make your way to this coastal gem.
Pembroke Castle is the landmark your likely to notice first. Built in 1093, this sprawling structure is among the most recognizable buildings in the United Kingdom. The castle has played an important role in the history of the country, and was the birthplaces of King Henry VII. Today, it is open to the public, where you can tour its grounds and get a sense of its place in Welsh history as well as an appreciation for its sheer size.
While Pembroke Castle is sure to attract its fair share of attention, the town has many other tourist destinations you should include during your visit. You should also make the trip to Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park, which is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Europe.
The national park contains a number of beautiful stretches of coast, including Broad Havent and Tenby beaches. There are also many other highlights that can be traced back to the earliest residents of Wales, including the ruins of Pentre Ifan and St. Govan's Chapel.
Visiting Wales is also a good idea because it opens up the possibility of moving to a tour of Scotland, which has plenty to offer in its own right. For instance, you'll certainly want to explore the streets of the capital city of Edinburgh, which is home to some of the oldest architecture you'll encounter in Europe.
Look down in wonder at Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster and St Paul’s Cathedral from your glass-walled pod on the London Eye, then gaze out over the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of rich pine forests lingers in the breeze as the 13th-century ruins of Turaida Castle are revealed before your eyes in the lush Gauja River valley in a medieval sanctuary untouched by the march of time.
The aroma of dark roasted Viennese coffee hangs thick in the air as you tread the cobblestone laneways and bask in the elegant architecture, atmospheric cafes and refined restaurants in one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe.
