Old College

Old College, on the beatuiful Aberystwyth seafront, is the main venue for the Steampunk event.

The Old College is a Grade 1 listed building, and was originally intended as a grand railway hotel, the Castle Hotel. It was built around Castle House which had been designed in the 1790s by John Nash for Sir Uvedale Price, a leading theorist of the picturesque movement.

Aberystwyth University is working on exciting plans to transform Old College into a vibrant heritage and cultural centre which will attract local people as well as visitors from far and wide.

The proposals would see this iconic building on Aberystwyth’s popular promenade take on a new lease of life as an exhibition centre, a place of learning and a hub for creative business start-ups.
