Explore The Film Set of West Wales This Year!

Written by Gareth on

Head to the beautiful landscapes of Ceredigion, West Wales to explore the natural film locations of the popular TV drama Y Gwyll (Hinterland).

Y Gwyll was first broadcast in Welsh by S4C in the autumn of 2013, followed by a ‘one off’ episode on New Year’s Day this year. The English version, Hinterland, has been a great success and was broadcast on BBC Four in the UK and is available also on Netflix.

Here’s a recent trailer to give you a taste of ‘Y Gwyll’:

Set around the coastal town of Aberystwyth, in Series 1 we were introduced to DCI Mathias, a mysterious and intriguing character with a chequered history. A series of murders to solve the series took us around the spectacular scenery and landscape of Ceredigion, including Borth and Ynys Las, the Cambrian Mountains and Devil’s Bridge to name a few.

Now it’s your chance to explore the area and to help you out Discover Ceredigion have produced this great guide to the area. And filming for series 2 is well underway so there’ll be further opportunity to see the area on your screens later on this year.
