Favorite thing: If you are spending some time in Wales and plan to visit several Historical sites then it could be worth getting a three or seven day explorer pass for Historic Wales as it then gives unlimited entrance to all its sites.
- Castles and Palaces
a lovely drive to get there
Favorite thing: The lovely town of Beaumaris is on the Ilse of Anglesey and to get there you cross the Menai bridge. The drive there from mainland Wales is lovely.
Fondest memory: The little town is easy to walk around and the ice cream is delicious! The views across to the mainland are lovely and there is the chance to go and see one of my favourite funny little birds - the puffin - with a boat trip to Puffin Island.

Anglesey is lovely.It is the northernmost part of Wales. It is a beautiful island made up of green fields, rocky shores and other, smaller islands. Holy Island lies off Anglesey's western shore, separated by sandbanks and a narrow winding channel which is crossed by two roads. It covers an area of 73 square kilometres ad fornms a rocky spine extending into the waters of the Irish Sea. Here there are unspoiled farmlands, wild cliffs, ancient sites and long beautiful sandy beaches. Most visitors go via the A5 crossing over the Stanley Embankment road link from Anglesey. In the north Beddmanarch Bay attracts wildfowl, seabirds and waders. The London - Holyhead road has always been important as it was, and is England's road into Ireland. A century ago the great breakwater at Holyhead was sheltering more than a hundred ships and there was a busy little town there. In fact there has been a site at Holyhead since the third century AD. To the west of the town is South Stack with the remains of a Stone Age settlement in heather and bracken covered slopes. The A5 runs to Holyhead and the road was opened in 1826, it was built by Thomas Telford. He was a great Scottish engineer.
