St Davids itself is Pembrokeshire’s jewel in the crown the village city surrounded by the sea and situated in one of Wales’s most stunning and exotic landscapes.


The Guardian 2011

"This could be the smallest bookshop in the UK; it's certainly located in its smallest city, which has a population of fewer than 1,800 people. Yet this gloriously idiosyncratic shop, opposite the cathedral, has another distinctive feature: it is run by the mayor * of St David's. Most subjects are represented, but the shop is especially good for natural history, archaeology, geology, the environment and Celtic history as they relate to Pembrokeshire. There's lots of architectural and ecclesiastical history, books for Welsh learners and a children's section packed with classics."
