Capital of Welsh Culture
"Capital of Welsh Culture"
With a population of just 15,000 Aber is a surprisingly lively place packed with cafes, pubs and libraries. (The town with most books per head in the world?) Apart from the University, a mediocre beach, the crumbling castle and the National Library there is nothing obvious else to draw you here. If your into minority languages it is in a Welsh speaking area, and has a vibrant Welsh langage culture scene but when saturated with tourists and students (mostly from England) you would never think so. It is a hen and stag night destination during summer weekends. It is a great place to visit when it's sunny and if you're into any kind of outdoor puruits e.g. mountain biking, hiking, sea sports, however it does rain a lot, and if you don't like cafes, pubs and books there is nothing much else to do here on those grey wet days.
