The largest town on the Welsh island of Anglesey, Holyhead is best known as a busy port. However the town also has a thriving tourist industry with plenty for visitors to see and do. As you would imagine from one of the county’s premier harbours, sailing and water-sports come pretty high up on the list. The marina is an ongoing development offering excellent marine services and there are over 200 buoy moorings available at the Holyhead Sailing Club. The Club is also responsible for organising several regattas and sailing events, all held within the Harbour limits.
The town centre has a bustling shopping centre, with a number of excellent restaurants along with a cinema and theatre. The surrounding area attracts outdoor types in droves who come for the superb golf and fishing, fascinating country walks and wonderful beaches. Culture Vultures will love exploring the surrounding islands rich heritage, including burial chambers at Barcloddiad Yr Gawres and a church in the sea at Porth Cwyfan. Within the town there are dozens of historical sites dating back to the town’s Roman origins. Visitors can also enjoy a day trip to Dublin on the super-fast ferry, which only takes 99mins each way.
It may be true that many visitors to Holyhead only stay a few hours or maybe a night whilst waiting for a ferry connection. But in truth even if you are catching a boat it is well worth arriving a day or two early and soaking up the rich atmosphere and warm hospitality. You never know you might just be tempted to pay Holyhead a visit in it’s own right.
