About Aberaeron

Walk around the old harbour and along the Quay Parade. Admire the brightly painted Georgian buildings and the sea views and you will see why Aberaeron deserves its title of Cardigan's Georgian jewel. Aberaeron was the first town in Wales that can be said to have benefited from town planning. The symmetrical Georgian architecture makes the whole town pleasing to the eye.

1807 was an important date in the planning of the town. It was then that an act of parliament was passed to give the Lord of the Manor of the time, Reverend Alban Thomas Jones Gwynne, the right to build the harbour and the associated buildings. This transformed the town from a simple fishing village into a port where, in its heyday, 70 ships were built.

Reverend Jones Gwynne's son, Colonel Gwynne, took over from his father and about 40 years later planned the town with architect Edward Hancock. The influence of John Nash shows strongly in the small town and it was thought that Hancock based his plans on the nearby mansion of Llanerchaeron, which John Nash designed and was built between 1794 and 1796.

The railway came to Aberaeron in 1911, marking the end of the shipping freight business from the port. It was closed in 1963 when many branch lines were axed under the Beeching Plan. The 2001 census recorded a population of 1,520.

Famous sons of Aberaeron include rugby hero, Dafydd Jones, who was born there in June 1979. He is now a Wales international and a player for Llanelli Scarlets. He grew up in the village of Llanarth, a few miles south of the town and first played rugby for his Aberaeron school team.

Writer, Cynan Jones, another Aberaeron native, published his novel, "The long dry," in June 2006, which includes many chapters set in Aberaeron.

Aberaeron boasts a beautiful setting on the main A487 Cardigan to Aberystwyth road. In Spring it is backed by gentle gorse covered hills but at any time of year it is known as good walking country. The path of the old railway line is now used as a cycle track. There is an aquarium, a good range of shops including many cafes and restaurants.

The town celebrated its bi-centenary in 2007 and annual local festivals include a Country and Western music festival in June, The seafood festival in July, the annual show of Welsh ponies and cobs which has been an annual event since 2002. There's also a regatta and a town carnival. The former hiring fair has now become a funfair in November.
