Why Move to Aberystwyth
Aberystwyth is a university town and community in Ceredigion, Wales. The county of Ceredigion is considered a centre of Welsh culture, where more than half the population can speak Welsh. Historically in the county of Cardiganshire, the literal meaning of the word Aberystwyth is “the mouth of the Ystwyth”.
Aberystwyth started out as a garrison town to help the Normans subjugate the local population. Since then, it has been a mining town, and for a while, local fishing and transporting ore mining meant it became the 2nd busiest port in Wales. It was also popular during the Victorian era as a holiday destination due to Aberystwyth benefitting from the temperate air that comes in off the gulf stream into Cardigan Bay.
Geographically, Aberystwyth is somewhat isolated from the rest of Britain by the Cambrian mountains which sweep down the backbone of Wales. However, this minor isolation does not in any way detract from its appeal, on the contrary, it is a major factor in its attraction. Situated on Cardigan Bay near the confluence of the River Ystwyth and Afon Rheido the town is in a particularly attractive area which boasts sandy bays, waterside properties, and its own castle.
Away from the water, Aberystwyth is just a quick 10-minute train ride away from some of Wales most scenic landscapes. Another of the town’s allures is that it offers a very safe environment, probably one of the few places remaining in Britain where an unlocked door doesn’t guarantee burglary. The town has a real cosmopolitan buzz about it mainly due to the presence of thousands of students who attend the popular Aberystwyth University.
Aberystwyth has no shortage of great amenities. Supermarkets, sports facilities, local public transport, and no less than three National Parks on its doorstep, combine to make it a more than self-sufficient location. The town is a place where people relocate in order to appreciate the simple things in life without having to compromise on quality.
Schools & Education
It is worth noting here that Education in Wales differs in certain respects from education elsewhere in the United Kingdom and that the study of the language is compulsory for all pupils in State Schools until the age of 16.
In one form or another, Aberystwyth University (UCW) has been a major educational location in Wales since the establishment of University College Wales in 1872.
The university has over 8,000 students studying across 3 academic faculties and 17 departments.
The town has two good comprehensive schools. Ysgol Gyfun Gymunedol Penweddig and Ysgol Penglais School. Both provide education to the town’s children as well as across a wide rural area surrounding Aberystwyth.
Ysgol Gyfun Gymunedol Penweddig uses Welsh as the primary language of tuition whereas Ysgol Penglais School teaches in both English and in Welsh.
Younger children also have access to a good assortment of high performing primaries so finding a school to suit your child’s needs won’t be too much of a concern.
Highly rated primary equivalent schools in the town include Ysgol Comins Coch, Ysgol Gymraeg Aberystwyth, Ysgol Llwyn Yr Eos and Ysgol Plascrug all rated as “outstanding”.

Spend the day on the beach – There are two to choose from North and South and both offer a fun day out. The South is popular with surfers, and the North is a focal point of the town and a favourite attraction for visitors and locals alike with the clean, dark sand and shingle beach offering traditional seaside treats such donkey rides, bandstand entertainment and a bouncy castle alongside the town’s Victorian Pier.
Aberystwyth Arts Centre – An award-winning centre recognised as a national flagship for the arts. It offers a wide-ranging programme all-year-round including drama, dance, film, and visual arts.
Aberystwyth Castle – Built to keep the Welsh out in the 13th century, The timber castle (later reinforced with stone) changed hands repeatedly as the Normans warred with the native Welsh. Now mainly ruins but, still a very interesting historical site.
These are just a few ideas to explore, but there are so many more just as interesting and diverse things to do and see in the wider county for all the family.
