Visit Ceredigion - Best of Ceredigion

Ceredigion (Welsh pronunciation: [kɛrɛˈdɪɡjɔn] ) is a county in Mid Wales. In the Middle Ages, it was a minor kingdom also known for a time as Seisyllwg. Following its Norman conquest, the name was anglicised to Cardigan and then Cardiganshire (Welsh: Sir Aberteifi) and it began to be administered as a county in 1282. This historic county was abolished in 1974 before being reconstituted in 1996 under the Welsh name Ceredigion. The county had a population of 75,900 at the 2011 UK census. Its largest town, Aberystwyth, is one of the two administrative centres; the other being Aberaeron. Aberystwyth houses Aberystwyth University, Bronglais Hospital and the National Library of Wales. The inland town of Lampeter houses part of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. The county is mainly rural with a low coastal strip along the margins of Cardigan Bay surrounded by a mountainous hinterland. There are a number of sandy beaches popular with visitors here, linked by the long-distance Ceredigion Coast Path. More than half the population speak the Welsh language and the county is considered a centre of Welsh culture. At one time, Ceredigion had more industry than it does today. Lead, silver and zinc were mined here, and its former seat at Cardigan was the principal port of southern Wales prior to the silting of its harbour. The economy then became almost completely dependent on dairying and the rearing of livestock, which were sent to the English market. During the last century, livestock farming has become less profitable, and the population of Cardiganshire has been in decline as people emigrated to more prosperous parts of Wales and to countries abroad. More recently, the population has started rising again as elderly people move into the county for retirement, and various government and European Union initiatives have encouraged tourism and other alternative sources of income.
