Tenby Mural, Market Hall Tenby

The 32ft by 8ft mural in Market Hall, Tenby was painted by local artist Eric Bradforth after he moved his family to the Tenby area in the 1950's. The painting displays events and details from Tenbys long history, including the building of the walls and railways and the various individuals whose influence on the town still remains.

Tenby Museum and Art Gallery

Housed in part of the remains of Tenby Castle, the Museum looks deceptively small but has six spacious galleries as well as a cafe, gift shop and toilet. There are permanent exhibitions as well as guest exhibitions. This is a great way to learn about Tenby's history.

The Carew Cross

The magnificent sculptured 14ft Carew cross is a royal memorial to Maredudd, who, in 1033, with his brother Hywel, became joint ruler of the early medieval kingdom of Deheubarth, now south-west Wales. Two years later Maredudd was killed and so they are able to date this stone with unusual precision.
