Anglesey - Camping & Motohome Guide

Anglesey

This small island on the northwest tip of Wales used to be known as the ‘Mother of Wales’ and was described as the centre of the region, despite its rather westerly location! Anglesey is famous for having the longest place name in Britain within its boundaries – “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”, which means “The church of St. Mary in a hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and near St. Tysilio's church by the red cave".

Famous people hailing from Anglesey include Dawn French, Iain Duncan Smith and Hugh Griffith.

Places of Interest in Anglesey 

The Menai Suspension Bridge

This bridge holds the title of being the first modern suspension bridge to be built in the world. Between 1819 and 1826, the engineer Thomas Telford worked on the project with the intention of improving the journey between Holyhead Port and London.

 

Before the bridge was constructed, travellers relied on ferries to make the crossing between Anglesey and the mainland – and many lost their lives in the treacherous currents. Livestock were even driven into the water to swim across to the mainland, since there was no other way to get them to market.

 

The views across the Menai Bridge are unprecedented, and worth the crossing simply to soak them up!

Llanddwyn Island

At the far end of a beach by Newborough Warren, you can find Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Landdwyn) – a beautiful rocky outcrop which is attached to the mainland by a causeway. Not only is the island rich in natural beauty, it has many interesting historic buildings, including the ruined church of St Dwynwen – the Welsh patron saint of lovers.

Llanddwyn Island became a popular pilgrimage destination during Tudor times, so much so that the shrine became the richest of all around. It was said that the faithfulness of a lover could be divined by scattering some breadcrumbs in a well, and then covering them with a handkerchief. If the eels in the well moved the handkerchief then your lover would be faithful.

The Copper Kingdom

In the late 1800’s Almwych Port used to be home to the biggest copper mine in the world. It was a thriving industrial centre, and around 10,000 people lived there – half the population of New York at the time! Nowadays there is an award-winning visitor centre known as the Copper Kingdom, where you can learn more about mining in Almwych. There are a number of interactive displays aimed at children and adults of all ages.

Visitors can walk up to Parys Mountain – the hub of the mining activity, and witness the extraordinary landscape that remains today. The land has strange colour casts from the processes which were used to extract the copper, and it is possible to view the remaining open cast mine from a platform.

Find the Copper Kingdom Centre, Amlwch Port, Anglesey, LL68 9HE

South Stack Lighthouse and cliffs

The wild outpost of South Stack is worth visiting for the spectacle alone, and if you enjoy bird watching you will be delighted to witness the puffins, guillemots, razorbills and choughs who call the cliff home.

Visitors can take a lighthouse tour and walk the 400 steps down to the side of the cliffs for a fantastic view of the cliff structure. It is always worth giving the venue a call before you set out for the day, since adverse weather can affect access to the island.

Find South Stack at Holyhead, LL65 1YH

The Dingle Nature Reserve

This ancient woodland valley covers 25 acres, with the river Cefni running through its heart. The name comes from the Welsh for ‘Valley of the Deluge’, Nant y Dilw – so called because it was a glacial valley after the last ice age.

Nowadays it is home to many wonderful species of wildlife, such as kingfishers, moorhens, woodpeckers, dragonflies and many more. The floor is carpeted with bluebells and wood anenomes in spring, and there are many beautiful and peaceful spots for a picnic. Bridges and walkways have been built to improve accessibility, so this site is suitable for visitors of all abilities.

Beaumaris Castle

This was the last endeavour of Edward 1, before limited finances and Scottish pressure caused his hold on Wales to slip. Reputed to be the most technically perfect castle in Britain, it is stunning to look at – albeit unfinished!

The castle is symmetrical in design, with walls within walls for ultimate strength. Ships could sail right up to the entrance to deliver supplies, thanks to a tidal gate and dock.

Find Beaumaris Castle at Castle Street, Beaumaris, Isle of Anglesey LL58 8AP
Telephone: 01248 810361

Cardigan Bay Dolphins

Cardigan Bay is the largest in the British Isles, and host to the largest resident group of Bottlenose Dolphins in Europe. Not only this, but Cardigan Bay is home to porpoise, Atlantic grey seals and many wonderful birds.

You can take a boat trip out to sea, getting up close to the wildlife in an unforgettable encounter. Many parts of Cardigan Bay have been made into a Special Area of Conservation, to preserve the natural richness for future generations.
