St Davids – Britain’s smallest city.

I thought I’d share a few photographs from our lovely day out to St Davids last week.

St Davids is actually a village (population ~1600), abet a beautiful one but was granted city status in 1995 by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral.

The cathedral is built on the site of St David’s 6th century monastery. The present Cathedral building was started in 1181.

The ruins next door are the remains of the medieval Bishops Palace.

The Oriel Y Parc gallery is located in St Davids and is well worth a visit. They had an exhibition of John Constable’s work when we visited and entrance was free. His famous painting “Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows” is currently on display.
