Travel Inspiration: Things to do in Anglesey

There are a lot of sights to take in when visiting Anglesey in Wales so we have highlighted five of the attractions that we think should be on your “to do” list.

Beaumaris Castle

If you are a fan of castles then you will be hard pushed to find a better one to visit than Beaumaris. Work begun on this famous castle in 1295 in reaction to the Welsh rising. It was built at amazing speed at first but struggling finances and supplies meant that 30 years later the Castle was still not complete. To this day this castle remains incomplete and is a wonder to explorer!

Foel Farm Park

This is the perfect attraction if you have younger children or any animal lovers in the family. There is plenty to see at the Foel Farm Park from a huge variety of farm animals that you can pet and even feed. There is also a selection of rides for young children. Just pay once at the door and then all the rides are free for the entire day meaning guaranteed smiles all round!

A great idea at Foel Farm Park is the indoor picnic area. This is the perfect solution to that infamous rainy weather that Wales is known for!

Pili Palas

Pili Palas is known as the butterfly, birds and minibeast palace! It features a startling variety of exotic butterflies and colourful birds from all around the world. There is a tropical hide, a lizard section and even a snake house to visit. There is a selection of small animals to pet and a great Learning Zone which has plenty of facts and information to soak up.

There is a great little adventure playground for the children and a soft play zone and bouncy castle to keep everyone happy. There is also a relaxing cafe to grab a bite to eat and maybe a drink.

Ellin’s Tower

This is an essential visit when in Anglesey and best of all it is totally free! Ellin’s Tower is on top of some beautiful cliffs with stunning views across the Irish Sea. You can enjoy the famous lighthouse or walk the grounds and take in the heathers and glowers while seeing the seabirds including Peregrine’s. There is literally miles and miles of stunning walking and trekking available here allowing you to relax and enjoy the fresh sea air. Why not take a small picnic up with you as well to make the most of the day, absolutely lovely, especially on a nice sunny day.

James Pringle Weavers

Sometimes you want to know where to visit to just have a good old fashioned shopping spree. When in Anglesey the best place to do this is the James Pringle Weavers centre that has a huge selection of shops including a golf shop, shoe shop, children’s clothing shop and a great shop that specialises in Welsh Food, Whisky and gifts. There is also a restaurant that serves traditional Welsh delicacies well worth checking out. Parking is totally free of charge at James Pringle Weavers too!
