The Isle of Anglesey

Known as the mother of Wales, the Isle of Anglesey is one of the most spectacular spots in the UK. Its stunning coastline – all 125 miles of it – is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, looking out over the mountains of Snowdonia on the mainland. From the sandy beaches of its east coast to Holy Island on its western side, you’ll never be short of things to do in the Isle of Anglesey.

If you’re hoping to get your adrenaline pumping, hop aboard the UK’s highest rated adventure boat tour and take in Anglesey’s natural history at top speed – with a world record recently broken on the island. Prefer to take things slow? Join a leisurely cruise around the Menai Straits and Puffin Island, where you’ll hopefully catch a glimpse of Anglesey’s most beloved seabird.

Back on land, the Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens are home to one of the UK’s largest population of rare red squirrels. With Foel Farm Park, Pili Palas Nature World, and the Anglesey Sea Zoo never far away, there are plenty of options for those who are looking to get closer to nature during their visit to the Isle of Anglesey.

Anglesey’s striking landscape has been shaped by the Amlwch Copper Kingdom – an 18th century copper mine that you can explore on the copper mine heritage trail. The mine may just be copper, but you can go for gold when it comes to planning your visit.
