Places to Visit

Ceredigion, on the west coast of Wales, is one of Wales's most popular holiday areas. Named after Prince Ceredig, Ceredigion is sheltered from the east by the Cambrian Mountains and stretches to the shores of Cardigan Bay (Bae Ceredigion).
Just to put things in perspective: Ceredigion's largest town is Aberystwyth, population 15,000. For us that's a big number, swollen by Aberystwyth University students who bring a cosmopolitan buzz to the Victorian holiday resort.

A town with more than 5,000,000 books stored at the National Library of Wales, the largest camera obscura in the world and a thriving arts scene focussed at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre - not to mention a working harbour, a marina and two beaches.

Most other places are much smaller and even if we say so ourselves, we have some little gems - Georgian Aberaeron, historic Cardigan, salty New Quay, traditional Tregaron and Lampeter (Llanbedr Pont Steffan) - another historic university town - to name but a few.


It is free entry to the Museum that has excellent visitor facilities and a café and shop as well as holding the National Textile Collection.
The Museum not only tells the fascinating story of the wool industry in Wales but also supports the production of fabrics in traditional Welsh patterns by a working mill, which can be seen in operation within the museum.

From the coast at Aberystwyth, watch the scenery passing by your window. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields, ancient woodland and rugged mountain scenery as the line twists and turns, clinging to the hillside to reach Devil's Bridge - home of the famous Mynach Falls and Devil's Punchbowl.
Opened in 1902, the railway is a masterpiece of engineering and has been delighting passengers young and old for generations. Although the line no longer carries lead ore from the mines it has been carrying holidaymakers to the beauty spot of Devil's Bridge for over a hundred years!

The 12 mile journey takes 1 hour in each direction. See timetables for departure times.
