St. Davids Cathedral (Welsh: Eglwys Gadeiriol Tyddewi) is situated in St Davids in the county of Pembrokeshire, on the most westerly point of Wales. It was the first cathedral choir in the UK comprised of girls and men, rather than boys and men. Check the schedule for weekly evensong. If you are visiting in summer, don't miss the cathedral festival which showcases some of the world’s best performers. Check out the Treasury Collection and the 10 bells housed in the old gatehouse, the heaviest of which weighs 24 kg (53 lbs). Grab a coffee at The Refectory and browse the bookshop and gift shop. As regular guided tours are only conducted during the summer, make contact prior to arrange tours at other times. In order to take photos, purchase your photography permit from the bookshop for a small fee. A donation is welcomed on entry. Plan your visit to St. Davids Cathedral and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our St. Davids vacation route planner.

  • A good place to walk around and you should come if want to do some serious photography. You can visit the Cathedral, talk a walk around the old heritage building. There is one small shopping centre inside where some antique hand made stuffs are sold. These goods are made by African tribes and some NGO helps them for sale. You can go around the hill side and do trek if weather permits.
  • Such a special place to visit, whether you're religious or not. It has a lovely ambience and is set in a dip making it unusual. Approach it from The Pebbles and the cathedral bell tower for the best first look.
  • 1500 years of history. Pity there is a £2 photo permit fee in the cathedral. That is really unusual. Either no photo or photos Bo flash policy. Not some funky photo permit policy.
  • Incredibly beautiful setting and so spiritual. A must visit.
  • The Cathedral just beautiful, as is the whole area. St Nons Shrine just as Amazing!
