Perfect for… surfing, outstanding panoramic views and coastal walks
Aberystwyth has been a popular Welsh seaside resort since Victorian times. The gentle curve of its sand and shingle beach is perfect for laidback summer days, and the sheltered cove it lies in makes it popular for surfing and bodyboarding. The pretty waterfront is lined with brightly coloured townhouses and the whole town is watched over by the dramatic outcrop of Constitution Hill. Hop on the charming funicular Cliffside Railway to the top, and you’re rewarded with superb views right across Carmarthen Bay and even over to the far-off mountain peaks of Snowdonia.
For panoramas with a difference, gaze at the magical projections of the hill’s Camera Obscura. This Victorian wonder projects 360° views and is the largest of its kind in the world. Holidays in Aberystwyth are just the thing for outdoor exploration; the beautiful Welsh countryside has no end of footpaths and bike trails to enjoy, and the gorgeous landscapes along the Wales Coast Path are truly something to behold.
It only takes a moment to enjoy a bespoke list of recommended holidays made just for you.
