Here are some of the local attractions that you can enjoy when you stay at Harbourside View:
The Promenade is the focal point of the town and stretches for a mile and a half from the harbour and Marina in the south to Constitution Hill in the north. It offers space to sit, soak up the sun and view the surrounding hills and mountains. During the summer season, the bandstand becomes a venue for several events with appearances from local bands, performers and choirs.
The Y Lanfa Marina was opened in 1995 and provides in excess of 160 permanent berths and number of visitor moorings.
At 430 feet high Constitution Hill provides a magnificent viewpoint from which you have an unrivaled view of the town and surrounding area. You can either walk up or take the historic Cliff Railway all the way to the top. It was opened to the public in 1896 and is Britain’s longest electric cliff railway, with a total length of 778 feet.
The Camera Obscura
The Camera Obscura sits at the very top of Constitution Hill. Inside, you can take turns to manoeuvre the fourteen inch lens which reflects an all-round view of the town and over one thousand square miles of the surrounding countryside on to the viewing gallery screen.
Vale of Rheidol Narrow Gauge Railway
Originally serving the lead mines in the Rheidol Valley, this is one of the most popular railway routes in Wales, taking you through 12 miles of the River Rheidol Valley with idyllic views right up to Devil’s Bridge.
Aberystwyth Castle was built by King Edward during the First Welsh War in the late 13th century. Building began during Edward I’s first Welsh campaign in 1277, and historical accounts suggest that the castle had already begun to fall into disrepair by 1343.
