Great exhibitions & staff, a shop full of quirky arty things (ideal place to look/find unusual gifts!) plus another full of books and a busy cafe serving reasonably priced delicious food. It’s a great place to visit!

Nice little theatre with good facilities,reasonably pricedbar with tables outside and nice views,also a cheap cafe which we didn't use. The one downpart was that I found the legroom in the theatre to small, worse than a budget airline.

Went Aberystwyth art centre last night with my wife and teenage daughter to watch the summer show- FLASHDANCE. It was awesome. Great cast and great performance. Joanne Clifton was great as Alex.
