CASTLES OF ANGLESEY

At present we haven't visited any Castles in this county

The Isle of Anglesey (plus its satellite Holy Island) was always its own county until the 1974 changes swept it into Gwynedd. Until Thomas Telford's famous Menai Bridge was built in 1826 this was a place extremely hard to reach. Because of that Anglesey has its own distinct nature and very few Castles - the only one of note being Edward I's final but unfinished masterpiece at Beaumaris - the most advanced medieval Castle in Britain.

There are few towns on Anglesey, Beaumaris and Holyhead being the only large settlements. One of the most famous places on the island is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwryndrobwllllantyciliogogogoch - normally shortened to LlanfairPG for some reason!!
