Despite being a University town of around 16,000 inhabitants, Aberystwyth is remarkably secluded. The nearest large towns of Swansea, Shrewsbury and Wrexham are all more than an hour-and-a-half away by car, making Aberystwyth all the more attractive for holiday makers looking to get away from it all.

There is a buzz around Aberystwyth, no matter what time of year you choose to visit. Throughout the autumn and winter months, the 8,000 students attending the university keep the town full of life, making good use of the shops and cafes along with the locals and filling bars, restaurants and Aberystwyth's 50 pubs at night.

The university was first established in 1872 but `Aber', as it is known locally, has a history that stretches back as far as the Mesolithis Age. Archaeologists in the area have discovered evidence suggesting certain parts in the area were used by humans to make flint weapons and tools around 10,000 years ago.

Aberystwyth is full of historic sights to see, things to do and beautiful Welsh landscapes to explore. The Pen Dinas hill has been the site of castles and fortresses since the Iron Age, and ruins of older fortifications sit alongside the Norman castle that was built in the early 12th century, only to crumble when Oliver Cromwell rose to prominence and gave orders to destroy Welsh castles.

The town boasts many attractions, such as the National Library of Wales, the longest electric cliff railway in Britain and a beautiful beach and port, making Aberystwyth a great place to visit. Tourists can take advantage of some excellent holiday cottages in the town and along the Cardigan Bay coastline to enjoy this ancient Welsh settlement.
