Fishguard, Goodwick and Lower Town form a close and friendly community in north Pembrokeshire. The area is famous as the location of 'The Last Invasion of Britain' when in 1797 French troops landed nearby. Local heroine Jemima Nicholas captured many of the invaders single handed and the Frenchmen later negotiated their surrender at the Royal Oak inn and laid down their arms on Goodwick Sands. The invasion is commemorated by an imposing and internationally famous tapestry which is on display at the Last Invasion Gallery in the Town Hall. Further articles on this website provide more information on the invasion. Fishguard stands on an imposing headland commanding superb views of the bay. It is the main shopping centre of north Pembrokeshire with two small supermarkets and family-run shops and businesses. There is a choice of hotels, pubs, restaurants and cafes with several pubs providing entertainment at weekends. The town provides many superb walks including the Marine Walk which has outstanding coastal views.
