"Biggest ratio of pubs to people in the country, so there's always somewhere new to go. Aber has it all; small traditional local pubs, larger bustling pubs, live music venues, clubs etc. Plus the small size of the town means you can do a proper pub crawl, rather than just pre-drinking and getting a taxi to a club." Aberystwyth University
"Only two clubs which are both extremely poor, but many many pubs which have a fantastic atmosphere." Aberystwyth University
"Pubs, beach, cinema and the pier." Aberystwyth University
"Drink and go to the beach." Aberystwyth University
"There are two main clubs, Yokes and Pier Pressure. Both venues have terrible music and most of the drinks offered are not of a wide variety for either drinkers and non-drinkers." Aberystwyth University
"So many pubs! Pier Pressure is the best club. Loads of cafes and nice places to eat, shops, charity shops, the beach, Constitution Hill, castle, amazing scenery." Aberystwyth University
"Not big-city night life at all, but large and varied selection of pubs and restaurants, a couple of clubs. Plenty of live music in pubs, often free-of-charge entry. The arts centre at university has lots to offer, plus a cinema in town." Aberystwyth University
"There is so much to do in Aberystwyth. For someone who loves the outdoors, Aberystwyth is the place to be. There are so many walks and outdoor activities one can take part in. For someone who prefers to eat out and go for a drink, there are also many places to eat in Aberystwyth and a range of pubs and bars which provide different atmospheres. So if you prefer a quiet drink out or even just a lemonade then you will be sure to find the right place for that." Aberystwyth University
"Seemingly hundreds of pubs, then Yokos and Pier." Aberystwyth University
"There are a few clubs and plenty of pubs that offer a variety of differing atmospheres." Aberystwyth University
