Discover Anglesey

Anglesey is an island that sits on the north-west coast of Wales. Attached to the mainland by the Menai Bridge, the island boasts 125 miles of magnificent coastline, best witnessed on a walk along the Coastal Path. The majority of the region is classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and attracts plenty of photography and wildlife enthusiasts with its excellent variety of flora and fauna, plus towering cliffs and award-winning sandy beaches.

For history aficionados, 13th Century Beaumaris Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a must-see. There are plenty of other attractions to immerse yourself in, like the Anglesey Model Village, Plas Newydd, home of the Marquess of Anglesey and the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve.
