Main port photo for Milford Haven, Wales

Nestled in an area affectionately called "Little England beyond Wales," the picturesque town of Milford Haven was founded in the 18th century as a whaling center. It takes its name from the natural harbor of Milford Haven, which was used for several hundred years as a staging point on sea journeys to Ireland and as a shelter by Vikings. Today, 14,000 people call Milford Haven home, but those numbers increase in the summertime as the beautiful beaches nearby and the pleasant climate make it an ideal retreat. Cafés, boutiques, galleries and museums fill this little city with local color and a lively atmosphere. Although the largest town in the area of Pembrokeshire has much to offer, Milford Haven is also a gateway to all that Wales has to offer. From here, discover the glorious monastic settlement of St. David, the patron saint of Wales. Explore Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of the smallest national parks of Britain, for picture-postcard views of coastal scenery, then delight in the charming medieval town of Tenby and visit Pembroke Castle, the oldest in western Wales.
