Best Things To Do & Days Out In Tenby

Ah, Tenby... Don’t we all love this Welsh seaside gem? Sandy beaches, medieval history, wildlife and dinosaurs - those are just a fraction of the great things to do in Tenby!

There are lots of beaches to choose from along the bay, from Tenby North Beach to Castle Beach but one of our favourites is Saundersfoot Beach. Situated right next to the bustling harbour, it has a special charm of its own.It’s sandy, well-sheltered and generally  ideal for family bathing. There are cafes and restaurants nearby, so an ice cream or hot drink is never far away!

The town itself is steeped in history. Get a glimpse of what life was like 500 years ago in the Tudor Merchants House, which has lots of its original features. The story continues at the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery where kids can dress up as explorers and go out looking for woolly mammoths, go on a dinosaur hunt or create their own artistic masterpiece.

There are lots more dinosaurs roaming the woodland over at The Dinosaur Park Tenby, where prehistoric predators are trapped in a tractor beam of time.Get close to your favourite toothy beasts, follow the nature trail and complete the quiz to become a dinosaur expert - we have an inkling this will be one of your little ones’ favourite family days out in Tenby! 

Oh, and if you fancy meeting some of the exotic animals of today, Manor Wildlife Park is a great place to do that. With loads of cool and endangered animals, such as Sumatran tigers roaming around, it’s definitely one you’ll remember. 

Fancy venturing a little further? Our trusted explorer Nichola has listed 10 great family days out in South Wales for you to try with your kids.
