Tenby (Welsh: Dinbych-y-Pysgod, "village of fish") is a town in Pembrokeshire, west Wales, lying on Carmarthen Bay. Probably originating as a Viking settlement, the town grew around the now-ruined Tenby Castle as a port, and is now a popular seaside resort.
Attractions in Tenby include four kilometres of beaches, the 13th-century town walls, the Five Arches barbican, the 15th-century St Mary's Church, the Tudor Merchant's House, a museum and art gallery, and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, part of Britain's only coastal National Park.
Boats sail from Tenby's harbour to Caldey Island, while St Catherine's Island is linked to the town at low tide.
The painter Augustus John was born in Tenby in 1871.
Tenby is an exceptionally busy resort in the Summer, with tourists coming from all over Britain and beyond. Its relatively unspoilt beaches and historic town walls make it a unique seaside resort. Most shops, pubs and restaurants in Tenby are specifically marketed to tourists with a number of places being standing room only in the Summer. There is a large holiday park nearby, Kiln Park and numerous hotels and guest houses.
Tenby is well known for its unique nightlife. Tenby has an usually high proportion of pubs for its population, with over 20 licensed premises in the town centre alone, there are a range of pubs, from traditional to sports orientated to contemporary. However, most of them are very small and fill up quickly at weekends and in the Summer. There are two nightclubs in Tenby.
