Few would believe that St Davids, with its quaint buildings and slow pace, were a city – if it weren’t for the magnificent cathedral set in its centre, that is.
St Davids Cathedral is this area’s beating heart and dates back to the 12th century. It’s a Pembrokeshire tourist attraction in its own right, drawing visitors from all over the world as well as locals who choose to worship, and marry, within its inspiring walls.
The Cathedral is also a popular venue for music festivals and choral concerts held throughout the year. Walk along its beautiful, peaceful – and, curiously, sloping – floors and you might be lucky enough to catch a soloist or choir rehearsing. It’s impossible not to feel uplifted.
