St. Davids Cathedral, St. Davids

4.7
#1 of 12 in Nature in Pembrokeshire
St. Davids Cathedral (Welsh: Eglwys Gadeiriol Tyddewi) is situated in St Davids in the county of Pembrokeshire, on the most westerly point of Wales. It was the first cathedral choir in the UK comprised of girls and men, rather than boys and men. Check the schedule for weekly evensong. If you are visiting in summer, don't miss the cathedral festival which showcases some of the world’s best performers. Check out the Treasury Collection and the 10 bells housed in the old gatehouse, the heaviest of which weighs 24 kg (53 lbs). Grab a coffee at The Refectory and browse the bookshop and gift shop. As regular guided tours are only conducted during the summer, make contact prior to arrange tours at other times. In order to take photos, purchase your photography permit from the bookshop for a small fee. A donation is welcomed on entry.

  • Absolutely breathtaking inside and out. Not usually my kind of place to visit, but can't recommend it highly enough. Such a wonderful piece of history. It's nice you can go in and wander round without having to pay. Lovely gift shop and cafe inside too. Wonderful place.
  • Outstanding ancient building set in beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately during our recent visit due to time restrictions and bad weather we were only able to view from outside. The building appeared to be in good condition and standing in well maintained and groomed grounds. Add this to magnificent surroundings make this visitor attraction well worth a visit.
