Overview of Anglesey

Overview of Anglesey

For a holiday fit for a king (well, a future king), fly to the island the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to make their home, Anglesey. What drew them there? Well, maybe it was that the entire coastline is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Maybe it was the world-renowned local produce and cuisine. Perhaps it was the island’s spectacular location, between the ethereal beauty of the Snowdonia National Park and the rugged Irish sea.  Whatever the reason, discover for yourself the charms of the island known locally as the Mother of Wales.

Restaurants and nightlife in Anglesey

Restaurants and nightlife in Anglesey

If you want heaving nightclubs and a roaring party culture then perhaps Anglesey isn’t the best choice for you, but if you want a small selection of excellent eateries, then you’re all set. Dylan’s restaurant serves some of the very best seafood sourced directly from the Strait, including the world-famous Menai mussels, lobster and Anglesey sea bass. The Black Lion inn is a characterful 18th century pub, and most of its menu is sourced from the island, in particular the meat, fish, bread, ice creams, cheese and herbs. After dinner, be sure to stroll down to The Oyster Catcher for a beachside cocktail.

Attractions within Anglesey

Attractions within Anglesey

Anglesey is surrounded by 125 miles of coastline which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so whatever the weather a day at the beach is a must. Church Bay, Porth Dafarch and Benllech are a sure-fire hit.

 

However, if the wild Welsh weather makes the great outdoors less enthralling, Anglesey aquarium features a unique display of fascinating local marine wildlife. Don’t expect to see the star of Jaws, but with over 40 tanks on display you will meet conger eels, and beautiful British seahorses (in the spring or summer you might even see a pregnant male!). The aquarium is worth a visit purely for the display of mesmerising moon jellyfish in their hundreds, some no bigger than a pin head, glowing ethereally in dimly-lit tanks 

 

History buff? Immerse yourself in the island’s rich historical heritage by visiting Beaumaris castle, where Owain Glyndŵr (Oh-WINE Glin-DOOR), the last Welsh Prince of Wales, instigated a fierce revolt against English rule in 1403. The rebellion was ultimately unsuccessful, but he remains a folk hero in modern Wales. 

 

Trivia fans will delight in a visit to (deep breath) Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch, the village with the longest place name in Britain and the second longest in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity for a photo outside the train station that displays the village’s full name (although the length of the sign makes taking a selfie tricky).  

 

For a day trip further afield you’re no more than an hour’s drive from the mainland of North Wales and Snowdonia National Park, the staggering beauty of which is the envy of the world.
