One of Ceredigion's favourite towns amongst visitors, Aberaeron is picture postcard pretty with its colourful Regency style houses and graceful architecture. Built in the early 1800s, Aberaeron is one of Wales's first ‘planned’ towns, and the brainchild of the Rev Alban Jones-Gwynne.
Formerly a thriving fishing port, sailing still plays a major part in the life of the town with a series of regattas in summer organised by the Aberaeron Yacht Club.
Aberaeron is also known for food with the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival on the quaysidse an unmissable opportunity to taste local seafood and produce prepared by celebrity chefs.
Aberaeron also sees a number of great events throughout the year including an annual carnival weekend, rugby tournaments and the Welsh Pony and Cob Festival. Check out our events page for more information.
