Home to part of the University of Wales and the National Library of Wales, this is a relaxing, evergreen seaside resort on the Irish Sea.

Overlooked by distant hills, including Pen Dinas - site of a huge Iron Age fortification - it also boasts the longest electric funicular cliff railway in Britain, several beaches, a pier and a harbour that was once the busiest on this part of the coast.

Nearby is the Vale of Rheidol and its steam-powered, narrow gauge railway. The picturesque area of Devil’s Bridge inspired the likes of Wordsworth.
