Aberystwyth is an ideal base to explore the Wales Coast Path along Cardigan Bay. Aberystwyth town and its surrounding countryside has a wide selection of accommodation and Aberystwyth has an annual programme of cultural and sporting events.​

Aberystwyth is a shopping centre for a wide area of Mid and West Wales, so has many of the major retail chain stores in or near the town centre. But the real pleasure of shopping in Aberystwyth is the many and varied independent shops and its Farmers Market, recognised as one of the best in the UK.

Aberystwyth has an excellent choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants for lunchtime snacks and meals or to pick up picnic treats. Treat yourself to an evening meal in one (or more) of Aberystwyth’s many independent restaurants – everything from excellent seafood and traditional fish and chips to Spanish tapas, Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, South Asian and Chinese or explore the menus of our seafront hotels and bars for modern Welsh cuisine.
