Architecture in AberaeronUnlike most towns in Wales, Aberaeron did not evolve around the changing demands of industry, but was planned from the start. Built in the popular 19th Century Regency style, Aberaeron is centred on a central Regency Square. Today, it is this grand but inherently playful and multi-coloured architecture, as well as its sleepy harbour, which make this town such a unique and charming place to visit.

The Llanerchaeron TrailTake a short walk away from all that Regency splendour, following the playful curves of the river, and you will arrive at Llanerchaeron, an 18th Century estate complete with stunning country villa and magnificently landscaped gardens.

This working estate has a farmhouse complete with cows, ducks, pigs, sheep and nearby fields where fruit and vegetables are grown. A visit to the estate makes a wonderful chance to enjoy the Welsh countryside: take a picnic, or buy your provisions here as the estate’s fruit, vegetables and dairy products are all for sale. You won’t be short of a tipple to quench your thirst either as there is a brewery on site too!

Throughout summer, Cardigan Bay hosts dolphin watching tours and the area is home to more dolphins than anywhere in the UK. So get on board and enjoy the rush of heading out on the water in a speedboat to try and catch a sight of these most intelligent and playful creatures.
