This year’s National Parks Week is a timely celebration of the beautiful winning landscape right on your doorstep in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Whether you’re after an individual or family-friendly activity, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has organised events to suit everyone from July 30th to August 5th to coincide with this year’s National Parks Week.
Events include paddling in rivers, rockpooling and crab catching trips to a ramble on the Castlemartin military range, a trek through bluestone country and a marine wildlife walk at dusk.
There are plenty of activities at the attractions run by the Park Authority too. Castell Henllys Iron Age Hill Fort events include a Prehistoric Fayre, Fighting and Farming and Willow Workshop and Rhonwen’s World, while there is a week of Medieval Fun Days at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill.
National Park Authority Chairman Cllr Tony Brinsden said: “National Parks Week gives us a great opportunity to say to everyone: come and see what we have to offer. Spend a day – or longer – enjoying the Pembrokeshire Coast and you’ll find it’s got everything.
“Even people who live here in Pembrokeshire may not have explored all there is to discover in this fantastic area: after all there are more than 90 beaches and coves, as well as the Daugleddau Estuary and the islands.
“All the events run by the National Park Authority will also leave you safe in the knowledge that you are having fun without harming the special coastal environment that makes this National Park unique.
We have activities and events for all ages and abilities - you never know, a hobby could turn into a passion for sport that sees you on the Olympic podium one day!”
