“Aberystwyth Cliff Railway is worth a visit, there's a Camera Obscura at the top of the cliff which can be accessed either by the cliff railway or by the walk up the footpath to the top. with stunning views over Aberystwyth and the Cardigan coastline it is well worth the effort. There is a restaurant/cafe up there so why not go and enjoy the relaxing views. ”
