We visited an artist open studio, an art exhibition; had coffee and cake in the restaurant. The bonus: I have a hybrid car, both electric and parking was free.

A nice modern building, but really it’s just a tourist information/shop. The shop has some interesting stuff and also some tatt. It’s a shame the centre for the National Park isn’t somewhere less remote than St David’s too.
