Fishguard Information Centre is situated at the Town Hall, in Market Square.
Fishguard is famous for the French Invasion in 1797, during which troops landed at Carregwastad two miles form Fishguard Town. Such was the resistance by local people the French soon surrendered.
The surrender treaty was signed at the Royal Oak pub opposite the Information Centre.
