  • If you want a good lunch for very little money you can't beat the National library of Wales. It obviously caters for the staff but anyone can go there. They serve tea coffee cakes as well

  • Terrific exhibitions. Good restaurant. Best shop in Aberystwyth. Great place to visit.
  • Holds and incredible number of books and archives. Simply brilliant.
  • It's really easy to find a book that you like and the view is amazing
  • The National Library of Wales archives are fantastic. I wasn't able to write this review earlier (when I was there) since the internet wasn't this elaborate. I was there during the mid-1990s. I was researching family records at the time. I was able to research original bishop records (with the appropriate care). Wow! What an experience. They have really preserved their records well (more than I can say about some Texas records only about 200 years old). Keep it up!
  • If you are looking for a book good odds say that this Library has it stocked. The reading room is quiet and a good work area for anyone studying, especially students looking to get there work done. Staff are always friendly and helpful, and the cafe is a nice place to get a bite to eat.
