Wales Coast Path

Aberystwyth is just one of many places you can access this long-distance national trail from.

One particularly popular part of the path stretches for 8km from the top of Constitution Hill through Clarach to the coastal resort of Borth. It's a pleasant walk, if you don't mind tackling a few hills!

The walk to Borth can be completed within two to three hours. If you're walking in one direction only, you can complete the circuit by taking either the train or number 512 bus between Borth and Aberystwyth.
