".....Stan drove 90 minutes at short notice to pick me up from Swansea coach station to take me to Cardigan. He even stopped off at Burger King as I hadn't eaten since breakfast. Has a nice roomy car that's clean and smells good. Great for trips up and down the Pembrokeshire coastal path. I love you Stan!.....

The Town of Cardigan, Ceredigion in Wales
A lovely and bustling town in Wales, Cardigan is a wonderful historic place to visit with your family. Located on the river Teifi in Ceredigion, the town was instrumental in terms of trade in the 18th and 19th centuries for most of South Wales, as its harbor was strategically placed in the area. With moderate summers and winters, Cardigan is a great place for a getaway.
According to the official VisitCardigan.com tourism site, Cardigan was established in the year 1119. Conquered and reconquered during the Norman invasion, then underwent many changes and by the 14th century was already an important exporting town and port. As the river became more difficult to navigate, trade began to break up around the area, and by the 20th century, its prominance as a major port had dwindled. The area today however is under extensive renovation and is a recreational area full of history in culture important to Wales.
Cardigan Guild Hall
One of the major attractions of Cardigan is its Guild and market Hall. The Guild Hall is located just off of College Row and Pendre. Built in in the late 1850s, it was created in the Ruskinian Gothic architectural style, which used features such as the pointed arch, the ribbed vault, and the flying buttress, some of which can be seen in this building. The building also has a clock tower, called the Whiskey Clock. Once a site for meetings, the open market, school, and library, now this unique building is comprised of shops and local vendors.
Originally built from wood, the castle had been moved upstream about a mile after the newer site was determined to be better. With an eventful history through the conquering of the Normans in the 1100s, the castle was captured and recaptured, eventually held by Llewlyn the Great in the 1200s. In the 2000s, the castle was purchased and is now undergoing renovations as part of the regeneration of the town.
National Wool Museum
As wool was an important export in Cardigan in the early 1100s due to its status as a port city, visiting the National Wool Museum provides a historical look at the area and its heritage. With many exhibits about the process of woolmaking itself to the textile gallery, this museum sheds light on local legacy.
Where to Stay
Cardigan offers many accommodation options, including smaller, self-serviced venues (Llanmair Cottage, Croft Farm, and camping parks) to more standard guest houses. Try Llety Teifi Guesthouse or the Caernant Bed and Breakfast.
With many activities and attractions to enjoy both indoors and outdoors, this town by the sea is a great place to unwind and learn about the history of Wales.
".....I've been booking taxis with Stan since 2004 and he has never let me down, always punctual and friendly. He's great for local trips to Gwbert, St Dogmaels, Cilgerran and Newcastle Emlyn. He also took me to Bristol airport once at 2.am. I can't fault his service....
