Aberystwth is not that exciting if you are used to places like Ibiza, but if you want a break from that then do go there. There is a bit of a night life, but
is a place where you can let your hair down because it ain't everyday that someone gets mugged. There are places you can see and places to go by train. There is Devil's Bridge the Three Bridges, a good day out for the family as the train journey which last about 1 hour takes you through all the mountains of Ceridigion. There is a cafe and you can walk to and see all the water falls even if you aren't a keen walker!
I've been to University in
for three years. Aber (as it is locally known) is overrun with students and that naturally makes it a great night spot any night of the week. There are several nightclubs to choose from and far too many bars/pubs. However, at the end of student year, Aber turns into a sleepy town and the only great part about visiting in the summer time is the weather. Best time to visit is between end of September and mid-December (before the students run out of money).
… My partner and i went there for a break, planning to stay there for about a week. We ended up staying a couple of days as there was not a lot to do. We'd walked everywhere where there was to walk so returned home, very sunburnt.
… It's great fun and exciting. There is fun for all ages and you can relax by the wonderful sea.
