Welcome to Narberth! It is a small town with a great deal to offer. It straddles the “Landsker Line” dividing the predominately welsh speaking north Pembrokeshire population from the mainly English speaking south of the county.
Narberth is an old Market Town and is reputed to have been the site of the court of Pwyll Prince of Dyfed as written about in the Mabinogion and had until recently been the site of local jurisprudence. It has a successful rugby team and also features both active football and cricket teams and has a full range of local facilities including a swimming pool.
Attractions in the town include several art galleries, the Narberth Museum, the former town hall which still houses the cell where the leaders of the Rebecca Riots were imprisoned and a ruined castle. Narberth has a range of independent shops, including a Daily Telegraph sponsored 'Best Traditional Business', a national award-winning butcher, women's boutiques, gift shops and has developed a reputation as an antique centre.
Narberth Food Festival takes place on the fourth weekend of September every year, there are stallholders selling food, drinks and cookware as well as talks, entertainment and children's activities. It is a not for profit event run by volunteers. Narberth Civic Week is held during the last full week of July and includes a parade through the town to one of the churches, where a service is held to welcome the newly appointed mayor. During Civic Week, there are various activities arranged for children, families and visitors to the town. The town is also home to the Narberth a Cappella Voice Festival, which is now (2018) in its tenth year.
It has a population of about 2100 people and is close to the A40 trunk road, so access to the M4 (35 miles) is reasonably easy and takes around 45 minutes.
