Wow this is a must visit place 39 steps lead down to the World famous St David's cathedral Absolutely fabulous interiors floors windows seats. Incredible place with Jackdaw population next door and old ruins has to be seen to be believed. Difficult walking for handicapped people or elderly.

The cathedral is in a lovely setting and the abbey ruins can be viewed from the grounds. Most areas are fully accessible with a stairlift accessing the lower level of the restaurant,. There is an upper level, accessed by spiral staircase, with views of the gardens - but the description oversold the reality.

Still, definitely worth a visit

A jewel of a cathedral nestled away in a shallow valley for historical safety. A stunning building with excellent facilities for visitors, good toilets and a lovely café and art outlet. There is a further gift shop outside. The cathedral contains a huge organ with some interesting wooden pipes but the masonry and stained glass were my favourites. The ceilings are also beautiful, a mixture of painted and natural timber.
The nearby Bishops Palace (ruins of) is also fascinating to visit but there is an entrance fee. We parked in one of the designated car parks very close to the cathedral and walked 2 minutes maximum. The short walk up into the city affords the most spectacular panoramic views of the cathedral and palace. The “city” itself is also very close and worth a look but it is very, very small. However, there are lots of places to eat and drink and book sea trips for wildlife spotting including whales, dolphins and Skomer Island.

W've paid a 'quick' visit to St.Davids on our way to Skomer. WOW, what a surprise. To be honest, it wasn't on our list as many places we have visit without any research in advance. Cathedral is one of the biggest surprises we met on our way, I didn't even know about it existence until the day.
Cathedral is real gem!! So beautiful and so distinct. I love it.
Could not recommend it enough.
