About this deal

The route south of Aberystwyth is one of the quietest parts of the Wales Coast Path that I have walked (and I’ve walked most of it). There aren’t any beaches for quite a few miles, just wild cliff scenery, the occasional swooping seabird and great views in either direction. Borth and Ynyslas Beaches Ynyslas is one of the best beaches near Aberystwyth The petrified forest on Borth beach is only visible at very low tides Love the world-building and how in the end, it's always about the dames and the girls. Everything is life or death in this universe and everybody plays a part - they may try to run from it, but it catches them in the end. Very Tragic, very Greek. Hope to find the next one in the charity shop soon. The Elan Valley is a series of picturesque reservoirs and dams built to supply the city of Birmingham with water. The scenic drive takes you past all four dams, the most picturesque of which are the Garreg Ddu and Craig Goch dams. One of my favourite drives in Wales is the continuation of the Elan Valley route, climbing to the head of the Ystwyth valley before descending between steep, bare mountains that are bleak in the rain and gloom, but beautiful in the sunshine.

Malcolm Pryce: Aberystwyth noir creator pens BBC Radio 4 play". BBC News . Retrieved 10 November 2015. Calamity" Jane, originally from Machynlleth, is Louie's assistant, whom he met as a tout in the Bingo hall during Aberystwyth Mon Amour. Aged 18 by The Unbearable Lightness she is more optimistic than Louie, and seems to base her detective technique on films. She investigated the old fire at Nanteos for a strange client, Gabriel Bassett, to gain her detectives licence. Her relationship with Louie is purely platonic, but no other lover of hers has been mentioned so far. Just as fun as the first one! Pryce continues to use language to his advantage - dramatic, over the top prose that hides real feelings.

It’s around ten minutes’ walk from South Beach to Aberystwyth Marina, a pleasant sight but far from the most interesting part of town. Aberystwyth Pier Starlings murmurating above Aberystwyth Pier I have always called it the Empty Quarter of Wales, while others call it the Green Desert. Either way, you’ll have great swathes of it to yourself. I once climbed possibly its most famous mountain on a glorious sunny autumn day and saw just two other souls in eight hours. Vale of Rheidol Railway The Vale of Rheidol Railway near Devils Bridge The town is as colourful as nearby New Quay, but very different in feel. Whereas New Quay is about fish and chips, Aberaeron is about finer food, especially local seafood best enjoyed in the Harbour Master on the quayside. It’s also more of a shopping destination, with some excellent craft shops to explore. Aberystwyth – A Personal Reflection North Beach and Constitution Hill at dusk Hinterland was broadcast in two versions. The Welsh language version, Y Gwyll, was shown on S4C in Wales, while the English version (with some Welsh subtitled scenes) was shown on the BBC.

I haven’t been there yet, but I’ve heard several good things about Mama Fay’s, a Caribbean restaurant on Portland Street. National Library of Wales The National Library Louie Knight, Calamity, Sospan, Eeyore and Herod Jenkins appear in Aberystwyth Noir - It Ain't Over till the Bearded Lady Sings, a BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama written by Pryce, first broadcast on 15 May 2013, produced and directed by Kate McAll. Borth is one long straggling street with caravans and holiday homes occupying much of the hill above. The food choice is limited to whatever you can find that goes with chips, but behind the sea wall you’ll find one of the most beautiful – and most mystical – beaches in Wales.

Pryce has also written The Case of the 'Hail Mary' Celeste and Aberystwyth Noir - It Ain't Over till the Bearded Lady Sings, a BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama, first broadcast on 15 May 2013, featuring Louie Knight and produced and directed by Kate McAll.

While my friend attended his open day, my other friend and I spent a couple of hours exploring this seaside town. We stood on the Castle Hill, looking down the Ceredigion coast to the south and the grey outlines of the hills of southern Snowdonia to the north. This article does not cite any sources. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.British author Malcolm Pryce wrote a series of six novels set in the town, including Last Tango In Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth, Mon Amour. The main protagonist of this series is Louie Knight, the only private detective in town, who spends his time delving into the (imagined!) criminal netherworld of the town. David Angel is a Welsh historian, photographer and writer, with over 30 years experience exploring Europe. It had important links with the Welsh princes of Deheubarth, and was captured by rebel prince Owain Glyndwr in 1404. The Abbey was eventually destroyed following Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539. And with an even better setting, on the seafront, making a dramatic sight straight out of a Gothic novel when the sea is stormy.
