St. David's in Pembrokeshire, West Wales is Britain's smallest city the final resting place of Saint David, the country's patron saint and traditional centre of Christianity in Wales. As you drive into what seems to be a small village the cathedral is hidden in a dip and you almost have to search for it but when you find it it's in a lovely, secluded setting.
Near to the cathedral is the ruined Bishop's Palace.
There is a stream between the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace, on the right is part of the Cathedral and the adjoining cloisters.

The coast around St. David's is beautiful and unspoilt, this is the beach at Newgale with the cliffs Ramsey Island, an RSPB reserve.

The other side of St. David's is Abereiddi Bay, again beautiful, unspoilt views.
We'd stayed at the Camping & Caravanning Club site above Abereiddi, while we were there we saw this superb sunset.
