Fishguard

Fishguard is a coastal town in Pembrokeshire, South Wales.

The town was the site of the last successful invasion of Britain in 1797, when a force of French soldiers landed by ship….although they surrendered only 2 days later ;>.>

The story of the invasion can be seen through the Fishguard Tapestry which was made to commemorate the 200th anniversary in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry.

The tapestry is really well made, and was on display at the town library when we were there :)

There wasn’t really much to see in the town, but the main reason we came was to see the harbour at Lower Fishguard……but the tide was out  ^_^;

Most of the boats were sat on the seabed, so the picturesque view we were hoping for was not there….bad timing for us >.>

It was still a nice little walk along the harbourside though….and some of the boats were in water for us to see :P
