For just £4 return this is something you must do if you are visiting Aberystwyth. Being pulled slowly up in the creaking carriage you start to see all that Aberystwyth has to offer, and when you reach the top you are afforded the most magnificent views of the bay and surrounding areas. You can see for miles and miles. You really need to do this on a sunny day though to make the most of the views.

So the view was beautiful and there's no denying that. But when at the top there was nothing do to. The cafe was shabby and had limited choice. We did have a look at the telescope at the top. We should have taken a picnic. Not for those go-getters who really are looking for an "attraction"..more suited for the adventurer. The railway itself - a little unsafe to say the least..i don't know how this would pass health and safety. Parts of the railway are coming apart from the cliff.

Well worth a look, spectacular views from the top. £4 each return. Take a camera to make the most of the trip

Had an ice cream at the top, saw the whole of Aberystwyth from the cliff. We liked the trip up standing at the front watching the cabin take us upward and enjoyed the trip back down. We had a lovely walk around the top of the hill.

Great day out from it all. Cracking ride on the train to the top with views to die for.Once at the top we went to the cafe for food which was a great price and good quality. The Camera Obscura was fascinating and we ended our visit with a game of bowls and a ice cream. There is also Frisbee golf to play if you feel like it and a free bouncy castle.looking fotward to our next visit.
