It’s a surprise to find the magnificent medieval edifice of St David’s Cathedral tucked away in a sheltered valley below what is essentially a village. The cathedral was sited here in the 12th century to hide it from marauders sailing the nearby coast, and it’s a real beauty – its aged purple and gold local stone looks magnificent at sunset, and features include a 125-foot square tower with clocks on only three sides, a magnificent 16th-century latticed oak roof and the monarch’s stall – the Queen is a member of the Cathedral Chapter, a feature unique to St David’s Cathedral. A guided tour is recommended to get the most out of a visit.
