The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
A historic market town, administrative centre and holiday resort, the town has a population of around 16,000 plus some 9.000 students at Aberystwyth University and other academic establishments. The University College was established in 1872 in what was a half-finished hotel building on the sea front near to the pier; from the 1960s the University relocated to the Penglais campus to the north of the town centre.
Aberystwyth Castle was built by Edward I in the C13th during the First Welsh War, at the same time as work started at Flint, Rhuddlan and Builth Wells. The ruins, in the centre of which stands a bardic circle of stones to mark the National Eisteddfod in the town in 1916, overlook the seafront.
The National Library of Wales is one of the great libraries of the world, is located in Aberystwyth - a mountain of knowledge about Wales and the world with millions of books on every subject, thousands of manuscripts and archives, maps, pictures and photographs, films and music, and electronic information. Visitors can tour the magnificent building, view exhibitions and watch films.
Ceredigion Museum in Aberystwyth has been described as 'one of the most beautiful museum interiors in Britain'. It displays objects of all ages from the county of Ceredigion/Cardiganshire; most of the displays are of the Victorian period and later.
The Aberystwyth Electric Cliff Railway, the longest in Britain, is at the northern end of the promenade and has been transporting visitors to the summit of Constitution Hill since opening in 1896; on a clear day it is possible to see 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. Once at the summit visitors can experience the views afforded by the world's largest camera obscura, which offers a birds eye view of 1000 square miles of land and seascape.
At the southern end of the promenade is Y Lanfa Marina which opened in 1995; the picturesque harbour has been dramatically remodelled to provide permanent berths for over 160 vessels.
The Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales' largest arts centre and has a wide-ranging artistic programme, both producing and presenting, across all art forms including drama, dance, music, visual arts, applied arts, film, new media and community arts. The Commodore Cinema in the town is a family-owned independent cinema with over forty years experience of presenting the latest films; it has a capacity of 410.
The Vale of Rheidol Railway, opened in 1902, is one of the Great Little Trains of Wales and trains depart from the centre of Aberystwyth adjacent to the mainline station that is the terminus of the Cambrian line from Shrewsbury. The locomotives and carriages currently in use were built for the line by the Great Western Railway between 1923 and 1938; the 11¾ mile journey between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge climbs over 600ft.
The Rheidol Hydro-Electric Scheme is an interconnected group of reservoirs, dams, pipelines and aqueducts; The Rheidol Power Station to the east of Aberystwyth has a visitor centre with an exhibition, video room and cafeteria.
In the same area is the Magic Of Life Butterfly House; in addition to hundreds of colourful butterflies, there are giant caterpillars and bizarre insects, collections of rare and endangered plants and woodlands, walks and waterfalls nearby in the stunning Rheidol Valley.
