Visit Aberystwyth - home to League of Wales pro football team - Aberystwyth Town F.C.! Aberystwyth, is a small town on the Ceredigion coast of Wales, just below the Dovey estuary. Politically, it's in the heart of Nationalist Wales, and is the birthplace of the Welsh Language movement. It is home to one of the oldest parts of the University of Wales, and the National Library of Wales - one of the UK's few copyright libraries; it has a copy of every book published in Britain.
Notorious for the remarkable number of pubs in the town - the pub culture that's part of life in 'Aber'. Aber is a very compact town; walking is the easiest way to get around. Do not miss the Aber sunset! The view over Cardigan Bay on a summer's evening can be quite stunning.
The best places to see the sunset are the long seafront Promenade, any of the beaches that take your fancy, and the University plaza and Arts Centre cafe located above it. Attractions include the ruins of the Castle, overlooking the bay, and a vantage point for sunsets, Constitution Hill, accessible by funicular railway in season, and a brisk 15 minute walk up to the summit all year round.
The views are tremendous, and there is a small museum and Camera Obscura, as well as a tea shop, at the top. If walking is your thing, then the countryside around Aber is beautiful. A popular walk is to Borth, a few miles up the coast, and blessed with wonderful beaches is an option. Watersports are another popular but be careful, the Irish Sea is famous for its undertow. There are also seasonal boat trips out into Cardigan Bay, where dolphins can be seen in the waters, and seals on the islands.
