The walk starts at the town of Neyland which owes its origin to Isambard Kingdom Brunel who made it the terminus of his South Wales Railway in 1856. Much of this section is along roads passing across the Cleddau Bridge, through Pembroke Dock, the departure point for the ferry to Rosslare in Ireland. The walk ends at Pembroke, a fortified medieval town with a castle dating back to the late 12th century, home of the earls of Pembroke and the birthplace of King Henry VII in 1457. See http://www.pembroketownguide.co.uk/ or http://www.pembroketown.co.uk/ for details of attractions such as the popular town trail, the museum of the home, the daily indoor market and numerous small craft, gift and specialist shops. The town also boasts a superb children's playground, with picnic and barbecue areas adjacent to plentiful parking on the commons road.
