Constitution Hill was a an early theme park built Victorians. It consisted of arcades and a restaurant at the foot of the hill, the railway, and at the top of the hill a camera obscura and park, of which it is the largest camera obscura in the world.

Aberystwyth Cliff Railway takes you from the promenade up to the top of Constitution Hill. The funicular railway opened in 1896 and is 237m (778 feet) long.

You can always take the meandering footpath as an alternative route to the railway.
