Aberystwyth Trip

Sunday 05 May 2024, 8:30am - 8:30pm

Meeting Point: Student Union


£29.00 (E-ticket)

Event Information

Set in the heart of mid-Wales, Aberystwyth bridges the North and South of the country. The Victorian promenade extends along the Cardigan Bay, with extensive views out to the Irish Sea, and hosts the oldest pier in Cymru, dating back to 1894 and still open today with an arcade, ice cream parlour and fish and chip shop. The best views, however, come from Constitution Hill. You can walk up here or arrive in style via a traditional clifftop railway, the longest electric funicular in Britian. Panoramas at the top spread out over town, to the Bay and you can spot no less than 26 mountain peaks on a good day! Once here, soak in ‘Victoriana’ with a visit the camera obscura and a game of mini-golf. Other attractions include Aberystwyth Castle, which you can explore completely for free; window-shopping in the many independent shops or taking some time to get in touch with nature by taking the Ceredigion Coast path and take in the Welsh scenery. You’ll soon be able to see why the Victorian’s flocked to this small seaside town!

Please note that paid attractions are at your own cost. This is to keep the initial price of the trip as low as possible, as everyone will want to spend their day differently. By visiting the Castle, the coast path and the town and walking up Constitution Hill, you can have a lovely day out without spending additional money.
