Information

St Davids is named after the patron St of Wales, St David, and is the smallest city in Britain. 

St Davids Peninsula has some of the best coastal scenery in Pembrokeshire, and forms part of the Pembrokeshire coastal path, a 186 mile National Trail from St Dogmeals in the north to Amroth in the south. 

The walk takes in part of the  impressive coastal path and finishes walking by the cathedral and into the city past independent shops, pubs and cafes.

What you will see on a hike around St Davids Peninsula with greenTor:

St Nons

St Non was the mother of St David. According to tradition, he was born here in the 6th Century AD, where the ruined Medieval chapel now stands. Upright stones near the chapel may be the remains of a Bronze Age sacred circle, recalling a legend that standing stones protected Non while she gave birth.
See the the holy well which is supplied by a spring of pure water, said to have arisen at the same time as his birth.

Porth Clais

From the 14th Century, Porth Clais was the main cargo port for St Davids, handling timber, corn, malt, wool and limestone which was burnt in the kilns to make lime which was spread on the fields to improve the acid soil.
