Isle of Anglesey WeekenderThe Isle of Anglesey, Ynys Môn in Welsh is known as the ‘mother of Wales’. It is connected to the mainland of Wales by the 19th-century Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, which span the spectacular Menai Straits.
This Island is known for its beautiful coastline, beaches, ancient sites, seafood and 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 one of the bridges by either train or car you are surrounded by stunning landscapes, not only of the island but of Snowdonia too.
On this Frui weekender some of the things you will experience are:
- 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 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 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 legacy of a landscape vivid with colour.
A legendary island in the widest sense of the word, an experience not to miss!
