What is Aberystwyth like?
Aberystwyth (or Aber as it is known locally) is a beautiful University town on the mid-Wales coast overlooking Cardigan Bay.
It’s local population of around 18,000 is boosted by an additional 7,000 students during term time.
The usual chain stores are inter-dispersed with local, independent businesses. The town has loads of pubs, coffee shops and restaurants to keep you well refreshed during the weekend. There is also a pop-up festival bar within the historic Old College building, overlooking the sea from the beautiful Seddon Room.
Many of the local pubs stay open until late on the Friday & Saturday and there are two nightclubs in the town centre.
All the venues are concentrated in one part of Aber – a section of the seafront from the Old College down to the bandstand. These are all within 10 minutes walk of each other along the beautiful promenade.
