I really want you to,

  • Come and rest on our beaches
  • Exercise your body and Open Your Soul for natural refurbishment
  • Blow Your Mind with the Staggering and Unexpected Coastal and Rural Beauty.
  • Fish like your partner don’t care
  • Knock a few balls - golf
  • Surf like the waves are going to disappear tomorrow

    I offer you all of this but – you worked it out – I want something from you in exchange.

    Beaumaris - Menai Straits



    BY TRAIN FROM ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

    The train from London is one of the most important routes Britain in that the Holyhead Ferries valuable commerce and passengers to and from the Emerald Isle from Dublin and Dun Laoghaire.



    REGULAR DAILY TRAINS TO HOLYHEAD FROM LONDON.

    Quickest Trains to Holyhead:

    Chester - 1hr 30mins
    Birmingham - 3 hrs
    Manchester – 2hr 40mins
    London – just under 4hrs.


    N.B. SOME TRAINS ARE REQUEST STOPS.
    STOPS: LLANFAIR PG, TY CROES, RHOSNEIGR, VALLEY.






    Both Crewe Station and Chester Station act as travel nexus that bring trains to Anglesey from all the North West and Central England cities like Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

    Each of the above cities is served by an International Airport: John Lennon Airport in Liverpool, Manchester International Airport and Birmingham International Airport.






    Getting from each of the above airports to Anglesey is a straightforward process.

    Sundays can be a bit of a pain, with journeys taking longer.

    So, travel on the other six days and rest on Anglesey on the seventh. Good enough for the Good Lord so a good example to follow. Don’t you think?

    So, as the old advert goes, LET THE TRAIN TAKE THE STRAIN




    PICK UP A CAR AT THE AIRPORT:

    Make Your Booking In Advance.




    BUSES FROM THE STATION:

    The train will bring into the heart of Holyhead and is connected to the Port and the Ferry Terminal.

    The bus stop is across the new and striking Celtic Gateway Bridge. Turn right and carry on along to the end of the main street. It’s just up from there.

    GETTING HERE BY AIR FROM CARDIFF


    Anglesey Airport is a recent marvellous addition to Anglesey’s transport infrastructure. It is regularly used by residents who travel to Anglesey and Cardiff.

    Play a bit of golf on the fabulously located and challenging golf courses and eat at sumptious award-winning local restaurants. Then flying back on Monday morning or evening.

    The normal approach to RAF Valley takes you all round the beautiful coastline, approaching the runway over the town of Holyhead.

    The Sales in Cardiff seem to be a prime attraction for the ladies. A flight down in the morning and a flight back at teatime. Laden. How sensible and lovely.




    Aircraft: 19 seat Dornier 228 aircraft

    Flight Time: Just Under An Hour.

    Flights are Twice Daily (see below for times).

    Anglesey Airport is located at RAF Valley about 2 Miles from the A55 Expressway.

    Menai Bridge



    GETTING ABOUT BY BUS


    The main routes are served by Arriva Buses and the more local routes are serviced by local companies.

    There are three main bus routes on the Island. These are Holyhead – Bangor, West Coastal Route from Holyhead - Amlwch, and Amlwch - Menai Bridge along the East Coast.




    To travel to any other inland location, then it’s best to start from Llangefni the central administrative town.

    The collective timetables are pretty well-integrated, though not all offer a service into the late evening. Click on the bus timetable link below for detailed timetables.



    Bus Travel To The Beaches during the day is very good. So why not pack your gear and children and step of the bus right onto the beach in many instances.

    Benllech could be a bit of a trek and forget about taking a pile of gear and host of young kids to Aberffraw Beach by bus – it’s a half mile walk there and back.

    For those of you who have come to walk the fabulous Coastal Path in segments by leaving the car at Point A and taking the bus back from Point B.

    Please be aware the bus service on some routes can be limited in the evenings.

    Swtan Thatched Cottage at Church Bay





    Amlwch – Cemaes Bay – Holyhead Arriva Route 61

    The buses on this route are local company buses and you’ll discover that they stop around 6:00 from either end.

    Therefore if you’re planning a long day’s trek then make sure that you’re at a bus stop in time, otherwise you’ll have to get out Shank’s Pony and the bugger’ll be tired before you even set off again.



    Amlwch – Menai Bridge – Bangor Arriva Route 62

    This is a better service that extends further into the evening and a handy one for travelling for a meal and then back to your digs after a few glasses of a nice chilled Chablis.

    There is a regular bus service in Holyhead that will take you to South Stack Lighthouse.

    BY FERRY TO & FROM IRELAND

    I believe it was Patrick Leigh Fermor who wrote that any coastal town or city should be approached by boat at night.

    I remember arriving in Marseilles Old Port at night with a large moon suspended over the cathedral and can confirm that Mr Fermor’s advice is correct.

    Setting out early from Holyhead Ferry Terminal gives you ample opportunity to enjoy the delights of Dublin and then ...

    Then return to Holyhead by ferry at night past South Stack Lighthouse, with the Skerries Lighthouse a beacon to the north. The town’s lights beckon. How wonderful is that?

    Travel to Dublin and back on the catamarans in 99 minutes.

    Or take a more leisurely journey on the large ferry. It’ll take you about 3 Hours and will give you plenty of time to relax, watch a film and have a good meal as you set out and before you arrive back.

    Both Stena and Irish Ferries offer regular twice daily return sailings and are pretty well-integrated with the Rail Service. Though they no longer hold up the London train if the ferries are a bit late.

    ALWAYS BOOK EARLY FOR SUMMER JOURNEYS
