Aberystwyth is a long drive from any other cities, but being so near to a beautiful coast means the distance to anywhere else is forgotten. The feeling of isolation is rare, with so many opportunities to socialise, shop, drink and relax. Aberystwyth is home to some of the most incredible sunsets, and with its hilly surroundings these can be witnessed without the hustle and bustle of the town or beach. These hilly locations are also perfect for appreciating the night sky, with little to no light pollution. A perfect choice for those wishing to be at a university, but not live in a huge city, without losing the popular high street stores and restaurants.
