Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    Built by St David, the patron saint of Wales, the cathedral has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for more than 800 years. Set on the site of an earlier 6th-century monastery, construction of the present cathedral began around 1180. Today, the cathedral – which is free to enter – is a spiritual and serene place to explore.

  • A beautiful Cathedral right in the centre of St David’s... this is what gives St David’s it’s city status, albeit being the smallest city in the UK! It’s a lovely place to walk around and there is a stream running through with benches to sit and admire the scenery.
