Aberporth is a pleasing coastal village on Cardigan Bay in Wales, blessed with golden sandy beaches that entice swimmers and surfers to linger, and Cliff Top Paths where soul pleasing views, and the wish of seeing Dolphins and Seals are often granted. Or possibly walking through a lush Rainforest is dreamed of , then, Felinwynt Rain Forest And Butterfly Centre is where Mother Nature's paint brush has been busy repeatedly. The passages of time reverse instantly at Newcastle Emlyn Castle which shows the ravages of Civil War, or there is always Cilgerran Castle whose evocative ruins would grace any fairy story, standing high ever watchful on a steep river gorge conjures evocative thoughts of days of yore. Perhaps the West Wales Museum Of Childhood will reveal delightful treasures from days long past, and if thats not enough the Curlew Weavers Woollen Mill offers an interesting tour and a tempting shop that will lighten any purse. All aboard for a scenic journey on a fabulous Steam locomotive at Teifi Valley Railway, or maybe the National Coracle Centre will weave it's spell, where intriguing Coracle's from all over the world are set within the enchanting grounds of a 17th Century Mill, and magnificent Cenarth Falls.
