How to get to Anglesey by Road
Despite its rural location, Anglesey is best accessed from both the North and South of England via the motorways network. From the South, the M6 to the M54 will feed drivers onto the A5 at Telford, taking them straight into North Wales.
Travelling from Scotland and the North of England is also straightforward. Drive on the M6 to where it joins the M56, before joining the main A55 that runs to Anglesey. If you’re looking to travel from Holyhead to Anglesey, it’s just an 18-minute drive away, or you can take the bus for a 40-minute journey.
