Aberaeron looks here to be an attractive old seaside town.  It's certainly attractive but it's a planned town and not especially old.  In 1807 the landowner was given permission to improve the harbour and rebuild the quay.  It developed into one of the major ports on the Welsh coast.

In time, especially with the advent of the railways, the trade through the port declined and nowadays its major industry is tourism.  It is known as the jewel of Cardigan Bay.

  1. How lovely. It really doesn't look especially old, but it certainly has charm.
