Aberystwyth – or ‘Aber’ as it's lazily known – is sitting pretty on the mid-Wales coast. It’s a quiet seaside town, miles away from… well everywhere, really. The hills, bay and river trickling through the town offer an inspiring backdrop... more detail The town’s small and student-dominated, making it hard to get around without running into friends and arch-nemeses alike.
