Trips to Tenby are the perfect complement to UK & Scotland tours

Perhaps the best thing about UK & Scotland tours is that, because they encompass a relatively small area, you can visit a lot of places in a short amount of time. When you're deciding where to go, you'll have to include a stop by Tenby in Wales, which has become a popular destination for travelers from around the world.

A seaside community of just under 5,000 people, Tenby may not seem like an the ideal vacation spot, but nothing could be further from the truth. The town dates back to the 13th century and has retained much of its quaint charm over the years, with cobblestone streets and a variety of local vendors around every corner.

Though its atmosphere is part of the appeal, many travelers make a point to stop by Tenby because of its pristine beaches. Despite its small size, Tenby is home to almost three miles of coastline, which usually become peppered with sunbathers come the summer tourist season.

Given the lengthy history of Tenby it would be a mistake not to pay a visit to some of the city's oldest structures. There are many to choose from, but you should not miss St. Mary's Church, which is among the oldest  buildings in the town. While most of it dates back to the 15th century, some areas can trace their roots to the 13th century, including the church's main tower.

If you have time, you should conclude your UK & Scotland tour with a trip out to Caldey Island, which is located about one mile off the town's coast. Home to Celtic monks, the island's relaxing tone will be a great way to unwind after your day's journey.
