A great place to start a visit to the area, the staff were very helpful guiding me to many of the great locations to visit in the area, recommending some hidden gems, rainy day activities.

stopped here several times to get information on the area, very informative and friendly staff. Nice exhibitions too.

Cafe good too with good choice of items and good quality food.

First impressions are important and
we were disappointed with look of the approaching exterior area, it looked a little tired and in need of a courtyard sweep up and the round bench seats were in need of some varnish, also no external rubbish bins or in toilet area...

The National park encourage visitors to take their rubbish home with them - we manage our grounds as sensitively as possible in respect of landscape growth - the wood for the benches are supposed to be managed very little in relation to our ecological practices.
Glad you enjoyed your visit and found our staff informative and friendly - hopefully we will see you again soon.
Check our website for events and activities, there is always plenty to see and do !

Lovely local crafts and pictures by local artists all the information you need for the surrounding area of St David's. I particularly enjoyed exploring all the little alley ways and walk ways around St David's during our stay to increase the amount I walked on certain days- picked up circular route ideas to walk the coast path on days that were less beach days- would recommend a visit.

The staff here are simply the nicest and most helpful; just like everyone we met in St David's; They Booked our concert tickets on line for us and printed them too. nothing was too much trouble. The café serves great food and the shop has a good variety. Loads of leaflets and ideas for things to do. I do think you might make your selves a little more visible though.

If you come into St David's by car or bus, you probably pass this visitor centre without noticing it, which is a pity. It really needs to be closer to the centre, and I don't know the history behind the choice of location. It is a striking structure, though mostly hidden from view from the road. I walked up from the town especially to visit it, and found it almost deserted, with one person dusting shelves and another telling someone it was a pity that more people didn't visit. I'm sure it must be used for planned activities and events though, it has good potential.
