Aberystwyth Castle
Aberystwyth Castle


Iron Age settlers fortified the hilltop called Pen Dinas with a huge fortification, one of the largest Iron Age hillforts in the region. Today that hillfort dominates the skyline as you approach Aberystwyth from the south. Not only does it create an air of mystery, it also reminds us of the skills of its ancient builders. It remains a remarkable testimony to the Iron Age people that they could construct such a formidable hilltop fortification with their primitive technology. That it has survived over two thousand years makes their accomplishment all the more impressive.


Aberystwyth Cliff Railway
Aberystwyth Cliff Railway


At the northern end of Aberystwyth promenade Constitution Hill rises dramatically to provide a spectacular natural viewpoint. On a clear day it is possible to see 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. The most relaxing way to enjoy this panorama is to travel by train on the longest electric cliff railway in Britain, which has been transporting visitors to the summit since opening in 1896. Once at the summit visitors can experience the views afforded by the worlds largest camera obscura, which offers a birds eye view of 1000 square miles of land and seascape. Aside from these two technological masterpieces there are fascinating historical displays, a kids play area, a well-stocked gift shop, and a cafe selling delicious home-made snacks. With such a combination of attractions, and the opening of a new education centre in 2004, Constitution Hill is a great attraction for visitors of all ages.

Its most celebrated owner, Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), built a new house in this remote location and laid out its grounds in a manner suited to displaying its natural beauties in sympathy with the 'Picturesque principles' fashionable at the time, with circuit walks allowing the visitor to enjoy a succession of views and experiences. Johnes also used the land for farming, forestry, and gardening, in each case trying out new ideas and experimental methods. Hafod became an essential destination for the early tourist in Wales.
