I posted this last month, but you can also use the code at Trainpal (£5 off £15) to make this even more exceptional value! You also get free refreshments on board (tea/coffee/ biscuits etc...) too You need to download the Trainpal app, and then create an account (you need to validate the email so ensure you can access the email you enter!). Then proceed to purchase your tickets (still via the app). The offer is only valid on Summer Saturdays (25th May and is likely to run each Saturday until the end of August). You can only book up until late July at the moment as cheap fares do not come out until 12 weeks in advance. The service departs Bristol Parkway at 10:09, and returns departing Pembroke Dock at 14:55.

2 Adults are £9.50 each, with this being reduced to just £5.40 each with a railcard! Single travellers without railcards are £12 each but if you add an extra journey of around £3 (can be anywhere) so the total is £15 (the minimum requirement for the code) the price is subsequently reduced to £10 each.

I did this last year and this is excellent value, even if it is a little niche! . Ideal if you are getting a connecting ferry to Ireland, or visiting the area on holiday.

Having lived in Pembrokeshire for many years, I can say the only reason for going to Pembroke Dock would be to get the ferry to Ireland :-). It's not the nicest of places (Sorry to any friends living there still).

Although I agree with you completely about the dock I think the op (and you are missing a selling point)

Tenby is a few stops before making the whole deal seem much more attractive.
And as someone who regularly pays 80 plus (40 in advance) for Tenby to London rtn this is an amazingly good deal .
What is in Pembroke to see or do? Are there any sightseeing
8 hours on a train for 43 minutes in Pembroke Dock. Probably a pacer unit as well

Do you mean Pembroke, Pembroke Dock, or Pembrokeshire?

Pembroke Dock = not much other than the ferry.
Pembroke = has a fantastic castle - one of the best in the country IMHO
Pembrokeshire = loads! Amazing beaches, castles, the Pembroke coast national park, Oakwood, Tenby, Skomer Island, etc. Google for more...

I used to live in tenby so completely agree! Don't get off at Saunderfoot though, long walk to the village and no Uber!
Is this worth it just for the long train ride?

Depends if you like travelling by train I guess. The route is decent though, especially after Swansea, where there are good sea views
