Cardigan is a town in the county of Ceredigion in Mid Wales. It lies on the estuary of the River Teifi at the point where Ceredigion meets Pembrokeshire. It was the county town of the pre-1974 county of Cardiganshire.
The town's population was estimated at 4,000 inhabitants in 2007, though it is a significant regional administrative centre for West Wales, harboring a hospital, college, a modern arts centre (with two-screen cinema) and a currently under-used nineteenth century guildhall together with a theater and good shopping facilities. Cardigan is twinned with Brioude, France. The current Mayor is Mark Cole of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.
The town has recently (2006/2007) undergone a renaissance with a co-ordinated program of building works restoring many of the facades of the town centre shops in a sympathetic style. The quayside has been rebuilt with a new civic area and landing stage.
In 1176 Cardigan Castle became the site of the first competitive Eisteddfod. Cardigan also hosted the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 1942 and 1976. The castle was for many years in private hands and as a result became run down and derelict. The town council itself showed little interest in saving it. However a group of volunteers, and the local Catholic Priest, working separately did raise its profile. Ceredigion County Council finally bought it in 2003.
