Tenby Coach Trip 15th June 2024

This month’s affordable community coach trip is our third this year, following the Wells & Glastonbury trip on Sunday, 28th April and Cheltenham & Cotswold (Broadway) trip on 18th May (both very successful with rave reviews). Everyone had such a fabulous time and we were blessed with good weather for both of them!.

This time we hop on the luxury coach to go to the beautiful sea-side town of Tenby. The coach departs outside Lidl Ystrad Mynach at 8.30am prompt. A second pick-up point is the bus stop on Nantgarw Hill, opposite the GE engine plant. Pick-up time there is 8.45am. We leave our final destination around 5pm to return by 7pm.

Cost is £18 per person, or £15 for premium members. We prefer payment upfront by bank transfer. Contact Mel on 07590 592902 or Esther on 07864 056919 for bank transfer details or for any other queries.

 

 

About Tenby

Perfect bucket-and-spade beaches

Golden sands, craggy cliffs, rockpools, gaping caves and rocky outcrops, Tenby’s many beaches have it all going on.

 

History-drenched streets

If walls could talk, the medieval town walls of Tenby would have much to say. Built by Normans to keep the Welsh out, these sturdy stone walls still encircle the old town (pedestrianised in peak season).

Tenby’s Welsh name, Dinbych-y-Pysgod, translates as Little Fortress of the Fishes and the ruins of the old castle still preside above the bustling fishing town. It was originally built in the 12th century by the Earls of Pembroke.

Castle Hill is also where you can dig deeper into the town’s history at the charming Tenby Museum and Art Gallery. Below lies a tangle of narrow cobbled laneways that ramble down to the harbour. Quay Hill is one of them. Here you can step back into Tenby of old at the Tudor Merchant’s House.

Now a National Trust property, the ancient house was the 15th century home of a wealthy family when Tenby was a prosperous trading port. Henry Tudor (later King Henry VII) escaped to France from Tenby in 1471 after seeking refuge in a network of tunnels beneath the town after the Wars of the Roses.

 

Harbour tales & adventures

The harbour brims with fascinating sights including tiny chapel St Julian’s church (where fishermen prayed for safe passage) and Dead House Stairs. The steep steps lead past a curious circular door that was the town’s old mortuary. For captivating tales of pirates, smuggling and wrecking, sign up for a guided walk.

A stroll along St Julian’s Street and the Esplanade takes you past colourful Regency terraces and Victorian villas, built when tourism first started in Tenby. It became a popular sea bathing resort in Georgian times and continued to lure visitors to its waters in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

You can also hop on a ferry from the harbour over to Caldey Island, which has a monastic tradition dating back to Celtic times. Today, it’s home to a small community of Cistercian monks that also happen to make (and sell) rather delicious chocolate and perfume.
