Haverfordwest is the best place for everyday shopping, with two main supermarkets, Morrisons and a Tesco’s Extra, as well as a number of competing low cost chains, Aldi, Lidl and Iceland. A new shopping centre to the north of the town has seen the arrival of Debenhams, Marks & Spencer’s and TK Maxx. The town centre has a number of smaller, specialist shops, but unfortunately as is the case in many town centres is beginning to look a little sad with a lot of empty premises.

Locally, Solva is worth a brief stop for ‘Window on Wales’, as well as some small art galleries and a pottery. St Davids is well blessed with outdoor clothing shops, a high quality delicatessen and a number of small art galleries and craft shops

Pembrokeshire Arts and Crafts

Pembrokeshire is home to many successful artists and crafts – the tourist guide and Coast to Coast newspaper, produced by the National Park, provide a good view of what is available. During the Summer weekends and Bank Holidays there are often craft markets in some of the towns in Pembrokeshire.

St Davids, Narbeth and Newport are particular centres for small art galleries and craft shops. Locally the Solva woollen mill and Melyn Tregwynt are both worth visiting if you are looking for blankets and rugs.
