This one one of the more deteriorated castles I've seen in the U.K. I know a lot of them over there are just ruins, but this was pretty run down maintenance-wise.

This is a very well tended ruin on the coast in the heart of Aberystwyth, It is a shame that it is a ruin, becuase it must have been really impressive.

The old castle has been nicely turned into a public open space; unusually there's nothing to stop you climbing on the walls which is fun for kids of all ages! Nice play area as well.

A well maintained surrounding area to a very good castle ruin. There are excellent views of Aberystwyth, the coast south towards New Quay and North towards the Llyn Peninsular. Next to the castle there is a lovely Childs play area with swings and rides, etc. There is a picnic area next to this and it is in close proximity to the Old Aberystwyth College. Car parking can be a problem so I suggest you park in a recognised car park and walk to the castle.
