Jul 22, 2015 - Aberystwyth

Today we visited Aberystwyth for two reasons. Firstly we need new tyres on the car and secondly to visit the town. Once we checked in the car to the tyre dealer we walked into the town. We headed to the promenade and walked south towards the castle and the harbour. The weather was not brilliant – it was hard to believe it was July. We passed the pier which was a bit run down and passed the original site of the Aberystwyth University. This turreted building which dominates the seafront was originally built in 1790 as a villa and then...

The drive through Wales was on very narrow and windy roads, so it was a bit hair-raising. Aberystwyth is a cute University town on the Ocean. It has some ruins of an ancient castle. We spent some time walking around the ruins and...

Jun 6, 2007 - To Aberystwyth via Criccieth and Harlech castles

June 6 - We made our way south along the coast toward Fishguard, where the ferries leave for Ireland, stopping to visit two castles on the peninsula near Porthmadog. Criccieth Castle and Harlech Castle are close together - you can see one from the other. But they are far apart in the Welsh mind! Criccieth Castle was built by the Welsh, and held against the English for a long time in the 13th century wars, until it finally capitulated. Harlech was built by the English king Edward, fastened to a high rock on the coast and virtually...
