Aberystwyth is a holiday resort and university town in the county of Ceredigion, West Wales. It lies on the west coast of Wales at the heart of the wide sweep of Cardigan Bay. The town nestles between three hills, Pendinas hill to the south, Constitution Hill to the North, and Penglais Hill to the east. The promenade bravely faces seaward in a colourful curved terrace of three and four storey Victorian hotels and guesthouses.
There are two shingle beaches, a lively but truncated pier, a picturesque harbour / marina that has been dramatically remodelled to provide permanent berths for over 100 vessels, and, on the headland between the harbour and town beach, are the remains of the late 13th Century Aberystwyth Castle.
