Aberystwyth – Ceridigion Wales.

Monday 14th September 2020.

Today Homer has brought us through the Welsh mountains to Aberystwyth.

The journey was 110 miles, a slow but steady plod, we were held up at times by slow travelling motorhomers. We are staying tonight at Aberystwyth Rugby Football Club for the hearty sum of £10 per night.

Fellow motorhome buddies Alison and Peter arrived just after 3 pm and after a quick cuppa and catch up on news we walked the short distance into Aberystwyth .

We headed straight for the sea front and walked along the promenade to the base of Constitution Hill which rises to a height of 97m above the town, at the top there is a cafe, a two lane bowling alley and a camera obscura.

This afternoon the temperature reached 27 degrees and as a result we chickened out of walking up Constitution Hill and instead caught the cliff railway.

The cliff railway has 778ft of undulating track and is reputed to be the longest of its type in the UK. We paid for a return ticket each and travelled at 4mph to its summit, the views on the way up were superb and once at the top looking in the other direction you could see the Lyn Peninsular, Bardsey Island and Mount Snowden.

When we returned to the bottom we walked back along the promenade past the pier and the original university buildings to the grounds of the ruined castle which gave good views along the coast to the south.

After an evening meal the weather was pleasant enough for us all to sit outside until it got dark.
