TENBY AS A SEASIDE RESORT. The town of Tenby of late years has been much improved, and now ranks among the most agree- able of the Welsh seaside resorts. It is a place of of great historical interest and natural beauty, and has justly attained a reputation not only as a. summer, but also as a winter resort. Its extreme healthiness and genial climate have not been unnoticed by the medical profession, who have pronounced the climate to be as mild and yet more bracing than that of Torquay-tho winter tempera- ture being mild. and the day and night tempera- ture more equal than at the other invalid resorts on the English coast. The following table shows the claims of Tenby as a winter resort for invalids as compared with the favoured Devonshire watering places :— MEAN TEMPERATURE OF THE AIR FOR EACH MONTH AT TENBY AND TORQUAY.

It is beautifully situated on a rocky peninsula, having a beach on both sides, north and south. The south beach forms a delight- ful promenade two miles in extent, and a more picturesque and enjoyable walk could not bo desired. The bathing facilities are of the best, the sand being particularly firm, without shingle, and with a most gradual declivity. Lovers of botany find Tenby a most convenient and interesting- centre. The angler cannot fail to secure good port. and he may be interested in knowing that the ancient Welsh name of the town is Dinbych-y-Pysgod—The Place or the Precipice of Fishes. Amongst the places of interest in the vicinity may be mentioned St. Catherine's Rock, Caldy Island, the lovely Valley of Caverns, Lydstep Caverns, Lamphey Palace, Tenby. Carew, and Manorbier Castles, while Tenby Church, which isi one of the largest in Wales, and dates from thtt middle of the thirteenth century, contains a num- ber of interesting monuments. A considerable portion of the ancient walls of Tenby iili stands, and one of the fortified gates which was erected on the approach of the Spanish Armada, is in good preservation. The journey from Pitddir.-tol), although somewhat considerable (275 miles), is comfortably performed in through coaches on fast trains over the Great Western Railway.
