summer in Aberystwyth from the top of the cliff railway

About us

Aberystwyth Cliff Railway is operated by Constitution Hill Ltd, a registered charity with the trustees all volunteers from the local community.

In recent years the work of the non-profit organisation has resulted in great strides being made towards restoring the hill to its former glory and making it fully accessible to all.

This includes the construction of ramps between the top station and the camera obscura ensuring that this fascinating attraction can be accessed by those with wheelchairs, prams and pushchairs.

In terms of restoration some financial resources have been generated through the securing of heritage grants, whilst our largest project has being the construction in 2005 of ‘Y Consti’ our new cafe/restaurant and gift shop built thanks to Objective One funding.

We would also like to thank ‘Enfys’ a charity based in North Wales whose grant paid for much of the display work and educational resources around the site.

Anyone wishing to make a donation towards our efforts can do so by contacting Alun Davies at Constitution Hill Ltd, Cliff Railway House, Cliff Terrace, Aberystwyth, SY23 2DN, or by calling us on 01970 617642.

Likewise we would be grateful to hear from anybody who feels that they have a skill to contribute in terms of volunteer labour.

Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope to see you on the hill top in the near future.


The Constitution Hill Team.
