Overview Of The Port Of Holyhead

About Holyhead
Holyhead is the largest town in the county of Anglesey, Wales in the United Kingdom.

St Cybi's Church is situated within the walls of a rectangular Roman fort and has nice stained glass windows, 13th and 15th century stone carvings and overlooks the harbour area.

The seafront, promenade, beach and maritime museum are between 15-25 minutes walk from the town centre.

The castle towns of Beaumaris and Caernarfon, are around an hour away by train/bus.

Conwy, around an hour away, is a medieval walled village with an outstanding late 13th century castle sited on a rocky headland overlooking the town. Climb up one of the towers for views of the town and surrounding area. The seafront is lined with fisherman's cottages. The main road enters the town via one of several stone gates connected by stone battlements and 22 towers.

There are several historic buildings here including Pas Mawr and the National Trust's 15th century Aberconwy House. St Mary's, a 13th century Anglican church, is tucked in behind Castle and High streets. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs here.

Also around an hour's drive away is Caernarfon Castle, completed in the late 13th century. The castle dominates a large town square, where stalls can be found selling souvenirs, antiques and produce. Nearby is the terminal for the narrow-gauge, steam-powered Welsh Highland Railway.

Llandudno, around 1 hour 15 minutes drive away, is Wales' premier seaside resort. A good photo opportunity is posing in front of the longest place name in Europe at the local railway station, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

Popular purchases include Welsh made knitted caps and scarves, handmade silver pendants, earrings and ornaments and items featuring Wales' Red Dragon.

Lamb dishes are very popular as is fresh seafood and fish, especially cod and mussels. The local pasty, the Welsh Oggie contains Welsh beef, leeks, potato, onions & gravy.
