Known to locals as Aber, the coastal town of Aberystwyth is an area full of hidden gems and family friendly attractions, starting with the long, sweeping seafront promenade. This mile-long jewel features the oldest pier in Wales and stretches from the attractive harbour at one end to Constitution Hill at the other.

For those seeking a spot of culture, head for the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, and its neighbour, the National Library of Wales. Home of the world’s smallest book, there’s always a packed programme of events, exhibitions and live performances for visitors to enjoy. Continuing the refinement, the Butterfly House is a glorious way to spend a few hours. Marvel at nature’s delicate beauties while you wander through the stunning glass-roofed gardens.

If you need an adrenaline fix now, Aber Adventures provides thrills, spills and laughs with wild water fun. Surfing, kayaking and paddleboarding can be enjoyed by the whole family, before heading for a bite to eat in one of the many seafront cafes and restaurants.

Aberystwyth offers a great day out, and catching the train makes your trip even more relaxing. Download our free app and buy tickets on the move, staying up-to-date with the latest travel news via our live X reports.
