The University Town of Aberystwyth is a unique place to discover, with fond associations for many visitors, graduates and residents alike. Its Victorian-Edwardian seafront is bookended by the ruins of Aberystwyth castle at one end, and the Cliff Railway at the other. Relatively remote in location, Aberystwyth is surprisingly cosmopolitan and worldly in its outlook. In the winter months you can find yourself cosying up with a glass of wine in a Spanish delicatessen as much as any of its more 'traditional' pubs and cafes.
'Aber' (as you will quickly end up calling it) also features heavily in the new police thriller TV series Hinterland, as well as featuring (quite logically) in the Aberystwyth Noir series of novels by Malcolm Pryce.
