Other destinations


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.

Get around


Beaumaris Castle
  • Beaumaris Castle [2] - Tel: +44 1248 810361. This is a 13th century castle of great interest to many, situated in a quaint untouched town on the Isle of Anglessey. Part of the ring of Stone built by Edward I of England, after he invaded Wales. Currently part of the Castles of King Edward I UNESCO World Heritage Site. A nice day out, but be careful as it's often difficult to find travel back to the mainland in the evening. Entrance is £3.
  • Pili Palas (Butterfly Palace) [3] - Penmynydd Road, Menai Bridge, Anglesey - Tel: 44 01248 712474 -
Hundreds of butterflies set in a lovely environment. Tropical environments are home to butterflies some as large as six inches across the wing. Visitors are invited to sit, relax, take photographs, or explore as butterflies fly around them.
