Places to visit:
Aberystwyth Arts Centre
The Arts Centre in Aberystwyth is situated on the Universities Penglais Campus. Noticeable for its amazing structure and also for the two pieces of art which exist along side it (a giant set of white stone steps and an impressive stone bell tower).
This is a popular and thriving attraction, both educational and entertaining. This is a great place to visit, with its theatre, studio theatre, hall, cinema, cafes, shops, exhibitions and much more.
There are several exhibition spaces within the building, which hold regular exhibitions,including touring artists (of national importance) and the best of Welsh art and craft.
The castle ruins sits, proudly on top of the New Promenade Hill overlooking the sea, town and surrounding hills. A great place to take in the amazing scenery. Built in 1277, this site survived the invasion of Owen Glyndwr, being a prison for French prisoners and in 1637 a royal mint was established.
The remains are the inner and middle walls (which is just a small amount of what once stood). One glimpse of history still stands is a bardic circle of 13 stones, one stone for each of the old, pre-1974 counties.
Constitution Hill & Coastal Walk
From the top of Constitution Hill runs a well– trafficked path all the way to the coastal resort of Borth. The Coastal path runs five miles right along the coast and makes for a very pleasant walk. At the
Aberystwyth end, the path starts at the summit of constitution Hill. The path is easy to find, running past the restaurant and signposted clearly.
The walk can be completed within 2 hours. This can be comleted by either the train or 512 bus between Borth and Aberystwyth.
Aberystwyth Electric Cliff Railway
Railway will carry you all the way to the top of Constitution hill. Going five miles an hour, you can enjoy the view. It was open to the public in 1896 and is the longest electric cliff railway in Britain, with a total length of 778 feet.
The Camera Obscura
The popular attraction at the top of Constitution Hill is the Camera Obscura. This is a re-creation of the Victorian amusement and with its huge 14” lens, it is the biggest in the world. This enables you to enjoy an even better view of the town and surrounding area. There is also a craft shop and a permanent exhibition on the hill and Y Consti Restaurant is certainly worth a visit as it has one of
the most stunning view in Britain.
