Lampeter (Welsh: Llanbedr Pont Steffan) is a busy market town in the Teifi Valley, Ceredigion, West Wales. Walkers enjoy the splendid countryside in the Lampeter area - and anglers enjoy the excellent fishing on the river Teifi. But the town is probably best known as home to the oldest University in Wales. Saint David's University College underlines the long history of learning and culture within Lampeter and indeed the Ceredigion region.
Architecturally the town is mostly Georgian and Victorian in character with much of the town life centring on the University College. The historic importance of the college can be measured by its close proximity to the castle, with the college quadrangle abutting the castle moat. In the 21st century, Lampeter is often hailed as the centre of the organic food trade and each summer celebrates the area's wealth of local produce with an annual Food Festival. Sixty food and drink stalls offer plenty of opportunities for sampling and buying the quality locally produced foods.
