Aber Monday: The Promenade (North Beach)

Hello and welcome to what is the first of (hopefully) many Aber Monday posts. I LOVE the place I live now, and I realise that a lot of people know very little about Aberystwyth, so I thought I'd share some snippets every Monday on my favourite things here in Aber. So, I hope you enjoy it!

I thought I'd start with my absolute favourite feature in Aber: The promenade. The promenade is over 100 eyars old, and is separated into a South and North beach. The Pier is in the middle. This post is about the Northern part, which is where I live, and, frankly, is the nicest part:)

The nearest pub; The Glengower Hotel (known as The Glen). Part of the hotel used to be the houe of Sir John Williams, the man who founded the National Library of Wales - and was a suspect in the Jack the Ripper-case. Spooky!

The promenade, leading into town.

The end of the promenade - the black building is called Alexandra Hall:) The hill behind is Constitution Hill.

This is what happens when the waves hit the shore - all these pebbles are from one night of storms! No one parks their cars on the seafront in that weather:)

I haven't been to this place yet as it's only open during summer, but it's on my list.

The Shop on the Prom, in case you can't be bothered to walk the five minutes to the Spar in town.

A view of the Pier, Old College, Castle ruins and WWI/II memorial, seen from North Beach.

You get some amazing sunsets from my window...

The Pier at night. Pier Pressure is a nightclub, Inn on the Pier is a sleazy bar, and the Amusements are... amusing?
- And that's pretty much the seafront! Did you enjoy your tour?
