Pembroke  (Welsh: Penfro) is the traditional county town of Pembrokeshire in south-west Wales. However, the administrative centre and de facto county town is Haverfordwest. The town and the county derive their name from that of the cantref of Penfro: Pen = "head" or "end", and bro = "region", "country", "land", and so it means essentially "Land's End".
Public transport to Pembroke also includes both local and national bus lines.
A comprehensive network of local bus services run throughout Pembrokeshire as well as to adjoining counties.
There is a very interesting town walk, get a free booklet at the Tourist Office on the Commons. Some of the buildings opposite the castle are medieval, one was the town jail. The walk takes at least an hour and takes you round the points of interest including the Mill Pond and the fantastic original town walls. As part of the walk you will see a terrace of 3 Georgian townhouses in Main Street; Penfro, 111, The Anchorage, 113 and Tudor House 115. 111 (Penfro) was built as the town house for a rich local landowner, John Campbell. This is the man who created the wonderful Bosherston Lily Lakes on the Stackpole Estate. This house is one of the most beautiful and authentic houses in Wales, even most of the front windows are original. In the corner stone at the front is one of the first stamp machines, which was discovered when refurbishment took place about 20 years ago. The Conservation Area covers most of the original town and has many very interesting houses and buildings. Hamilton House on Main Street appears to be one, but is in fact two houses. Lady Hamilton lived in one and Nelson in the other and her husband lived across the street. There is also the Flying Boat Visitor Centre at Pembroke Dock, which is free entrance and run by volunteers. The museum is dedicated to the Sunderland Flying Boats which were moored here during World War II. The remains of one of the flying boats lies under the water in Pembroke Dock after it sank during a storm in 1940.
B&Bs: Pembroke has a variety of accommodation, of which B&Bs are plentiful. However just like elsewhere advance reservations are recommended during the summer months.
