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.
