With chilly winds coming in from the northeast this Easter Weekend, sheltered southwestern parts of the UK are set to see some of the best of the weather on offer.
Pembrokeshire in southwest Wales is known throughout the world for its legendary coastal scenery. No part of Pembrokeshire is more than 14 miles from the coast. So you can see why this is such a great place to visit for those in love with the sea. As well as offering majestic views, the secluded bays and cliff-lines of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path provide an array of coastal spring flowers and birdlife to enjoy.
Then you can head inland from St Bride’s Bay to St Davids, the smallest city in the UK. The famous cathedral dates back to the 4th Century. And the National Park Visitor Centre is open all year round.
For a loftier view of this beautiful landscape, a wander into the Preseli Mountains will reward lovers of hill-walking, wildlife and archaeology. Enjoy the breathtaking views across the Irish Sea. Then look beneath your feet – there are prehistoric remains here that date back to the bronze age.
Expect the odd shower on Saturday. But much of the weekend will be dry with some spring sunshine. Take some layers, though, especially for those evenings out, enjoying the local hospitality.
