Understand

Get in

Anglesey is reachable by train and car from the mainland of Wales, as well as by high speed ferry from Dublin.

While there is a skeleton bus service, this is not regular (most services are hourly at best, and nonexistent on Sunday or in the evenings), and has a reputation as unreliable. Partly as a result of this there are many local taxi services.
