Anglesey



The Isle of Anglesey, once called the Mother of Wales, has bags of character. Perched in the far northwest of Wales, it has always had a strong sense of otherness. Where else would the locals have been bold enough to cook up Britain’s longest place name, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch?

Natural Beauty
At less than 300 square miles, the island is far smaller than most British counties, but there’s plenty of variety in its breezy, open landscapes. Much of Anglesey’s 125-mile coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – a lovely collection of sand dunes, coves and cliffs, with pretty villages and pebble beaches.
 
Walking the Coast
A stroll or a hike along the Anglesey Coast Path is a great way to explore. Do it all at once or tackle the path in chunks. There are many beautiful stretches to choose from. The island contains three of the six Welsh Heritage Coasts.
 
Architecture
It’s also home to some fine architecture: Plas Newydd, an elegant National Trust mansion, and the World Heritage listed Beaumaris Castle.
