South of Aberystwyth lies the beautiful village/town of ABERAERON, one of Wales few and certainly earliest 'planned town'. The streets are laid out on a grid system. But, it is not the grid that gives the charm, it is the row & terraces of coloured houses. Aberaeron is a lively place at any time of the year. It is an often painted place especially the iconic 'Harbour Master' right on the harbour quay.
