Anglesey is a very large Island off the NW coast of Wales and is often crossed but seldom visited by those travelling to Ireland via Holyhead. Until 1826 it was unconnected to the Mainland and the Irish MPs had a rough journey overland and on ferries over the treacherous Menai Straits en route to Westminster!
It is easier to get here now, by road and rail, using our glorious bridges and to explore the wonderfully varied coastline, unique fens, sandy beaches and delightful small towns.
The Island is building a reputation for locally sourced food and used to be called 'The Mother of Wales/ Mam Cymru' as it produced quantities of cereals and wine in Roman times.
Spotted Rockrose is the county flower.
Visit Anglesey is the place to start if you want to find out more. There is a Walking Festival every June.
