Fishguard tourist guide

One of Pembrokeshire's best known towns, Fishguard, is also in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the trail of the world-famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Famous as the location of 'The last invasion of Britain' in 1797, when French troops landed at nearby Carreg Wastad, it is possibly even better-known today as home of the ferry service to Rosslare, Ireland (at Goodwick, birthplace of world-famous singing star Tom Jones, just outside the town).

Fishguard, as the main shopping town in this part of Pembrokeshire, offers a host of family-run shops and businesses, traditional pubs and a busy market held each Thursday in the Town Hall. Being on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, walking, climbing and cycling are just some of the big attractions to Fishguard - the Fishguard Marine Walk in the town offers superb views over the coast, and the Gwaun Valley is a favourite of walkers and cyclists alike. The older "Lower Town" part of the town by the mouth of the Gwaun river has featured in many films over the years, perhaps the most classic of all being "Under Milk Wood," with Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Peter O'Toole. The mile walk to Goodwick is certainly worth it for the shops, cafes and pubs and the award-winning Goodwick Beach.
