An ancient former port of CARDIGAN (Aberteifi) was founded by the Norman lord Roger de Montgomery in 1093 around a castle (closed to the public). From the castle, Bridge Street sweeps up to the turreted oddity of the Guildhall, through which you access the town’s covered market, a typically eclectic mix of fresh food, local crafts and secondhand stalls. Cardigan sits at the lowest bridging point of the River Teifi, one of Wales’s most eulogized rivers, for its rich spawn of fresh fish, its meandering rural charm and the coracles that have been a regular feature since pre-Roman times.
