About

Are curious to hear previously undocumented tales from Aberystwyth’s past?

The Ceredigion Museum’s audio tour consists of a map and a series of stories relating to five Aberystwyth locations, and it begins and ends at the museum.

The tour will be of interest both to residents of Aberystwyth and to visitors who wish to learn more about the town’s colourful history and the characters, events and stories that have shaped it.

To access the audio tour go directly to the Ceredigion Museum website and you will be able to download the audio tour map or call into the museum to get a copy.

ABOUT THE AUDIO TOUR

Carrie Canham, Ceredigion Museum curator, said: “
“Heritage is about so much more than dates and famous people and places. We wanted to capture stories that you would normally hear in a pub, at a school reunion or over coffee, stories that connect us to our hometown.”

To produce the tour, the museum worked with the local community, historians and a digital storytelling expert to capture the untold stories of Aberystwyth and connect the wider community on digital platforms.
