Aberystwyth has the famous Constitution Hill, the Victorian equivalent of a modern day theme park, rising dramatically from the sea, providing spectacular & uninterrupted views of the town, Cardigan Bay & on a clear day, 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. This can be reached by train on the funicular electric cliff railway. Aberystwyth is also the starting point for the Vale of Rheidol steam railway to Devils Bridge & a huge tumbling waterfall & gorge. Pumlumon is part of the Cambrian Mountain Range, the last refuge of the Red Kite in Britain, until a few years ago. Other places to visit are the impressive sand dune system of the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve, which jut out across the mouth of the Dovey Estuary; the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron & the pretty resort of New Quay that once inspired poet Dylan Thomas & where Bottlenose dolphins can often been seen from the harbour. The whole area is a haven for walkers, cyclists & outdoor enthusiasts.
