To enjoy spectacular views of Aberystwyth, head to Constitution Hill, at the northern end of the Aberystwyth promenade. You’ll be rewarded with beautiful, unobstructed views of the town and Cardigan Bay. Reward yourself further by choosing one of these amazing Airbnb vacation rentals, to enhance your stay in Aberystwyth.
