Isle of Anglesey Weekender

Anglesey, or Ynys Môn in Welsh is known as the ‘mother of Wales’. It is connected to the mainland by the  Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Rail Bridge, spanning the fast running, spectacular Menai Straits.

This Island is known for its beautiful and varying coastline, beaches, ancient sites, seafood and of course Anglesey sea salt! It is a place that inspires and appeals to all the senses – a place to see, hear, taste, smell and feel. It is a place to get away from it all.
From the minute you cross the water on either of the of the bridges you are surrounded by amazing landscapes, not only on the island but across the Straits to the snow-topped mountain range of Snowdonia.

Itinerary incudes:

- The medieval town of Beaumaris, with the 13th-century Beaumaris Castle which has concentric fortifications and a moat.  Beaumaris Gaol with its Victorian punishment cells and an original tread wheel!

- Historic South Stack Lighthouse which is located on a small island reached via a descent of 400 steps down the steep mainland cliffs. As well as the stunning views, there are also thousands of nesting seabirds including guillemots, razorbills and puffins

- Parys Mountain which was known as 'Copper Kingdom', is a site which has been mined since the Bronze Age. For a period of time it produced more copper than any other mine in the world. This now abandoned mine in a remote part of the island has left the incredible legacy of a rugged landscape vivid with colour of copper

A legendary and beautiful island in the widest sense of the word, an experience not to miss!
