Aberystwyth History Tour is a unique guide to the illustrious history of this picturesque market town on the West coast of Wales. With roots traceable back to the Normans, for centuries fishing, sea faring, lead mining and agriculture were the mainstays of the local economy; with the arrival of the railways during the Victorian period, tourism also began to boom. The town is one of great character and charm, it boasts a mile of promenade, beaches, a harbour, ruined castle, university, medieval street plans, the National Library of Wales, a narrow gauge and funicular railways. Local author Will Troughton guides the reader through its charismatic streets, showing how its famous landmarks and hidden-away gems have transformed over time. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited on this tour to discover for themselves the changing face of Aberystwyth.
