(based on 18 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"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."
