Isle of Anglesey Vacation Packages
Travel across the Menai Strait to the Isle of Anglesey, the Mother of Wales. Explore miles of coastline, almost all of which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Head inland and find standing stones from prehistory. Relax in quaint villages and bustling towns.
Visit Anglesey to discover a great concentration of Welsh historical sites. Originally settled by prehistoric farmers, the island was a prominent holy place of the ancient Celts. Their druids congregated here, which made it an important target for Roman conquest. Despite this, it was the last place in Wales to fall to Roman invasion.
Stroll down the streets of Beaumaris, one of the prettiest towns on Anglesey. See buildings that are among the oldest in Britain and visit boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. Head to Beaumaris Castle and climb the walls and towers. Built by King Edward I as part of his campaigns against the Welsh, Beaumaris Castle is notable for being the most technically perfect castle in Britain.
Visit Moelfre, a beautiful harbor village. Follow the stream as it flows between stone buildings to the sea and explore the historic sites of Din Lligwy and Lligwy Burial Chamber. Visit in August for Moelfre’s Lifeboat Day. See hundreds of boats congregating in the harbor, shop at the market stalls and enjoy the music and entertainment provided.
Hike along the Coastal Path, 125 miles (200 kilometers) around the island. Follow the signs and head over mountains and sea cliffs. The walk requires about 12 days to complete and will take you through 20 towns and villages. Make your own way or book a tour with local guides, who will also arrange your accommodations.
Reach Anglesey from the mainland by train, car or ferry service from Dublin. Take a plane from Cardiff or a long-distance bus from many parts of the U.K.
