    We visited this lovely seaside town a couple of weeks ago and I was blown away by its beauty. I'll be posting up a full photo report shortly, but here's a couple of pics so start with...

    It is indeed. Huge and wide and wonderfully devoid of people when we took a stroll on a breezy September morning.

    Pics soon!

    Used to love visiting as a kid, though it was the posher people who holidayed there; it was the miners holidays in a caravan in Trecco Bay for the likes of us :p

    Yes, I've been there, it's lovely.
    Was last there in the late 90's with my parents, we actually stayed in a caravan on a site near Saundersfoot.
    There's some beautiful countryside in the area :)

    haven't been for a long time, but it is a really nice town - gone a bit wild at night, IIRC - in the summer at least...they used to say that it was a place for Brummies to holiday, something to do with train connections I think.

    I Love Tenby, went there as a kid and stayed in kiln park caravan site, my brother and I crawled through what seemed like natural "tunnels" under gorse bushes to get to the beach every day as we preferred it to the path. The little zoo on top of the rock was still open at that time, quite a sad place really as the animals were in such small cages.
    Been a couple of times since for day trips, and still love the place. :)

    We went there last week for our first holiday as a family. It is a truly stunning place, pretty much unique in having so many gorgeous beaches walking distance from a town centre. It's a paradise for young children, and we're already planning to go back next year. My favourite thing that we did was a seal safari round Caldey Island in glorious September sunshine, worth it for the views of the Island let alone the abundant wildlife. Oh, and I'll mention the Hope and Anchor on this thread too, best pub in the town, great food and real ales.

    The artist Augustus John was born in Tenby.
    There is a lovely little museum with some of his work and that of his sister Gwen John I remember visiting, can't remember exactly where it is but it's on a hilly bit overlooking the beach.

    Very cute place - just a few miles from where I grew up. Was an isolated fishing town for a long time and developed its own slang among the fishermen - my Dad can speak it but it's impenetrable to me.

    Place would have been rammed a month ago.

    Likely to be rammed again imminently, the weather prospects for this coming weekend and early next week look very unWestWales like ie GOOD! :cool:

    We went to Tenby early last November in a similarly unseasonal spell. LOVED the place :) -- and our guest and mate Eva Luna (once a regular on here) was well impressed too ... :cool:

    Spent a summer down there when I was 18. There was this big old hotel right next to the old wall that was due for demolition. The owner let a bunch of us live there for a few months. Amazing place.

    We go there 2 or 3 times a year, always out of season. The Pembrokeshire coast is superb, and Tenby town has a lovely old-world, slightly dilapidated feel that I love.

    Shame they're tearing down the old cinema though.

    They're looking to develop the old Island fort, btw:
