22. Tenby Pembrokeshire Wales, United Kingdom

Why Tenby, Pembrokeshire Wales

 

This is a quaint Welsh town that is worth visiting. Just the colors of the houses and the ebb and the flow of the tide makes it totally worth it. Oh and it may not be so unfamiliar in the future as it was recently featured on the BBC series Sherlock Holmes.

Also, Tenby was one of the places where the boats were moored to pick up the pilots returning home from WWII that could not make to London.
