    A county island, situated at the north-western tip of Wales, the Isle of Anglesey is also known by its Welsh name, Ynys Môn. Connected to the Welsh mainland across the Menai Strait by two bridges, the Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, Anglesey is the largest Welsh island, with an overall area of 278 sq miles, and a 125-mile coastline. Anglesey is at the heart of a strategic route between the British mainland and Ireland, and the largest town on the island is the busy port of Holyhead, with regular ferries over the Irish Sea to Dublin; but Anglesey has so much more to offer visitors than just a ferry port.

    And most recently, Anglesey has been given royal approval, by becoming the home for the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; Prince William’s duties as an RAF air-sea rescue pilot mean that the newly-married couple will spend their first two years together in a rented Welsh farmhouse.

    Things to do in Anglesey
    The winding lanes, spectacular coastline and numerous megalithic monuments mean that Anglesey is a popular choice for a wide variety of pursuits. Horse riding across beautiful countryside and stunning beaches is a popular activity; or take advantage of the Coastal Path, much of which falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Anglesey is also recognised by UNESCO for its geological features and was the very first island to achieve Geopark status. In addition to a stunning natural landscape, there are numerous privately-owned gardens, arboretum and nature reserves, many of them open via the National Garden Scheme.

    Anglesey also enjoys some superbly situated facilities for motorsports and golf. For cyclists, the 36-mile Copper Trail, or Lôn Las Copr, is also known as route no 566 of the National Cycle Network (NCN), and is just one of the many excellent parts of the Anglesey ‘cycling jigsaw’, which also encompasses four further circular routes. Or start your journey in Cardiff on route 8 of the NCN, or in Chester on route 5, and complete your journey in Holyhead.

    Top Destinations

    Holyhead – An important port and the Celtic gateway to Ireland, the Chester and Holyhead Railway opened in the town of Holyhead in 1848, giving a swift passage across Anglesey for ship passengers en route for Ireland. To the north-east of the town lies the 23-metre red and white striped tower of the Skerries lighthouse, fastened upon a rocky outcrop at the end of a low tract of submerged land.

    Holy Island – By contrast, on the north-west coast, at Holy Island, the 91 foot South Stack lighthouse, strikes a strong, imposing white figure, and is open to the public from Easter through to September. Close by, a separate visitor’s centre, Ellin’s Tower, is a great vantage point from which to watch nesting fulmars, guillemots, puffins and razorbills on the nearby cliffs.

    Holyhead Breakwater & Country Park – At 5,100 feet in length and enclosing an area of 316 acres, this, the longest breakwater in Europe, was built between 1846 and 1876, using local stone. Next to the town and port, a 106-acre country park was created on the site of a former quarry, from where the stone was taken for the construction of the Holyhead Breakwater. The Country Park opened to visitors in 1990, and offers all manner of exhibitions, walks and wildlife.

    Plas Newydd – The National Trust-run ancestral seat of the Marquess of Anglesey is also home to a stunning mural by the artist Rex Whistler; partially telling of his unrequited love for Lady Caroline, the daughter of the sixth Marquess, this vast artwork is over 58 feet wide and 12 feet in height, making it the single biggest canvas in Britain. The eighteenth century house and grounds enjoy spectacular views across the Menai Straits to Snowdonia, whilst the beautiful gardens include an Australasian arboretum and a pretty Italianate Terrace Garden.

    Beaumaris Castle – A World Heritage Site, the castle was the last of the great castles to be built in North Wales by King Edward I, as part of an ‘iron ring’ of castles to control the Welsh in the north.

    Bodorgan – Each year this tiny hamlet to the south of the island hosts the Anglesey Vintage Rally, attracting aficionados of traction and steam engines, vintage vehicles and machinery, and classic cars, motorcycles and pedal cycles.
