About Aberystwyth

Aberystwyth is a busy town in the heart of Cardigan Bay on the west coast of Wales. The literal meaning of the name ‘Aberystwyth’ is mouth of the river Ystwyth (this is why you see many Aber‘s around Wales!), although it is the Afon Rheidol that runs through the town.

We have a lot to celebrate in Aberystwyth, and no doubt we will add to this page as time goes on. Here is draft one!

Of course the town itself is probably most associated with the promenade – the gorgeous views on a sunny day, the pier, Constitution Hill, the two beaches and the castle, right in the middle of the two.

That’s not all Aberystwyth has to offer – we have a huge wealth of local businesses to support, a busy events schedule in the town, community groups and more.
