Well worth a walk along the sea front. Lot of names on there for such a small town. Very moving. The views are also excellent across both sides of the bay.

This is a must see when your in Aberystwyth. It is situated in front of the castle, overlooking the sea. It’s beautifully done and seems to be a focus point for some photos in Aberystwyth

This is a huge memorial to fallen soldiers. Sits in a magnificent place looking out to sea. Well worth a visit and it’s next to the castle which is free.

A fitting war memorial for the fallen soldiers - good site too within the castle - encourage youngsters to ask about it.

Standing proud next to the castle along the seafront is the very impressive war memorial. Worth checking out, and paying your respects, of you visit the castle
