Aberystwyth University Open Days: Where to Stay
When visiting Aberystwyth University Open Days to have a look at the university and campus, take the opportunity to explore not only the university life, but also the life in the town, which may be quite different from what you are used to, especially if you are coming from a big city. Aberystwyth is a relatively small town and, more importantly, it is quite remote – situated in one of the most sparsely populated parts of Britain.
If you have the time, it is best to stay at least for one night and experience Aberystwyth both during the day and in the evening. The town centre is lovely and safe; the small size is of course a limitation, but there are almost always things to do and see. Moreover, Aberystwyth has beautiful surroundings, both along the coast and inlands. If you like nature and the outdoors, it might be the perfect place for your studies.
Always Check the Location
If you come without a car, make sure you find a place to stay in the city centre or near the university campus. Although Aberystwyth is small and it is easy to walk from one end to the other, many of the hotels and guesthouses you will find online are located in the surrounding villages, while still being marketed as Aberystwyth hotels. Make sure you always check the location when considering a place to stay.
