Tenby Town walls are as impressive as they are well-preserved.   Built to defend the town, they survive in almost all their glory.  We followed the walls along Florence Parade to the sea-front, then took a walk onto the beach, the town walls continue along the sea-front but they are mostly incorporated into the walls of private residences at this point. Our stroll along the beach took us in the direction of the remains of Tenby Castle.





There is not much left of Tenby Castle itself, a single solitary tower sits on the cliff top, from where there is a good view over to St Catherine's Fort, (which sadly is abandoned and not open to the public.) If you walk down the hill from the castle you will see the original castle entrance, and nearby is the museum- always worth a visit!!! The route I have described is a good fun stomp for children, gets them out in the fresh air and climbing up the steps from Castle Beach is good exercise!!! There are plenty of facilities in Tenby town.
