Camera Obscura, Aberystwyth

Photo of Camera Obscura, Aberystwyth.
Currently the largest camera obscura in the world, this fascinating attraction is part of a recreated Victorian pleasure park. It consists of a 14 inch lense, with 360 degrees of view around 1000s of square miles of Welsh land and sea, all reflected into a circular viewing gallery below the camera.

A 1980s recreation of a pre-1920s tourist attraction on Constitution Hill, the first camera in Aberystwyth was built nearby in 1880. Visitors can also learn the history of the hill and take a ride on the cliff railway. Facilities include y Consti Restaurant, which has its own beautiful views and is open all year round. There is also a games room with coin operated attractions including air hockey and ten pin bowling. Admission for the camera is £1 and it is closed November to March.
