Whether you’re looking for great Christmas gifts or want to visit Santa in his Grotto, two of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s top visitor attractions are holding events that can help you get your festive fix.
Carew Castle and Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre are both hosting special Christmas events, where you’ll also find family fun and be inspired to explore the National Park’s world-class landscape.
National Park Authority Chair Gwyneth Hayward, said: “These events both offer an opportunity to enjoy some festive fun with the family as you help support some of the area’s best small businesses and sample great local produce.
“The winter months also provide an ideal opportunity to see the National Park in a different light, so why not take this opportunity to wrap up warm and explore it with a brisk walk on the beach or on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.”

The Carew Castle Christmas Fayre will take place from 9.30am-4pm on Sunday 25 November.
