Constitution Hill Aberystwyth

Book Tickets Online


Constitution Hill rises dramatically from the sea, providing spectacular and uninterrupted views of Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay. On a clear day you can see 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales.

At the summit you will find one of the world’s largest Camera Obscuras, which offers a bird’s eye view of 1000 square miles of land and seascape.

Constitution Hill also boasts the longest funicular electric cliff railway in Britain, which has been transporting visitors to the summit since opening in 1896. You will also find historical displays, a kids play area, a well-stocked gift shop, and a cafe selling delicious home-made snacks.

Penglais Nature Park

Famed for its spring displays of bluebells, the Penglais Nature Park is situated on the north end of Aberystwyth. The beautiful woodland scenery of the park is a favourite local haven.
