The Aberystwyth Group of the Ramblers operates in the northern half of Ceredigion in Mid Wales. It is part of the nationwide Ramblers organisation which represents the interests of walkers throughout Great Britain.

The activities and interests of the Aberystwyth Group are as follows:

Walks Programme

The Group leads a programme of walks in the area.  The complete programme for the current half year can be found in the Aberystwyth Walks Programme document. Alternatively these are posted on the relevant page of the national Ramblers website. Non-members (including visitors to the area) are welcome to come along for up to three walks before they are expected to join the Ramblers. Please note the precautions and advice attached to the programme. Details of walks can also be found in the Cambrian News (weekly local newspaper) along with information about walks arranged by other groups in the area.

Note also that dogs are not allowed on walks with the Aberystwyth Group.

Walking in the Aberystwyth Area

Some suggestions and advice are offered for anyone planning a walking holiday in the area – including information on:

  • the 60-mile Ceredigion Coast Path (Cardigan to Ynyslas) which was officially opened by Assembly Minister Jane Davidson in July 2008
  • and the 870-mile All Wales Coast Path (Chepstow to Chester) opened in May 2012
  • Walks leaflets and booklet, including in particular those produced by Ceredigion County Council and available on line as well as at Tourist Information Centres.
