Flying to the UK
If you are flying to the UK from Europe, then the best places to fly for Aberystwyth are Birmingham, Manchester or Liverpool. Many of the budget airlines (easyjet, ryanair, bmibaby, flybe) fly to these airports, and at reasonable prices if you book early (looked up Barcelona <-> Birmingham for those dates and it was €160). Trains or hire cars can be taken from all these airports and it is about three hours in each case.
If you are coming from further afield, then you will either fly to London, or change somewhere like Paris or Amsterdam to fly into Birmingham. The train from London Euston to Aberystwyth takes 5 hours. The drive from Heathrow is about the same, with Gatwick taking an hour longer. In each case, I would not advise driving all the way on the day of landing from an overnight flight.
You can find out UK train times on the Internet from National Rail enquiries. From London Euston or from Birmingham International (the airport), you will need to change trains at Birmingham New Street.
