Anglesey, an island in Wales, is found just off the northwest coast of the mainland. If you plan to visit this place with your family, know that there are lots of things to do in Anglesey with your children, and you’d definitely enjoy your stay here.
Anglesey is known for its ancient sites and its beautiful beaches, so if you like all things historical, you’d be excited by the places you’ll get to visit. Interesting fact: you’ll get to Anglesey by crossing the 19th century Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, both of which you might want to take photos of.
Before you pack your bags, make sure you write down these Anglesey family trip ideas so you can prepare your itinerary ahead of time:
Play on the Beach or Surf in Rhosneigr
Rhosneigr is one of the best places to visit, not just in the summer but all year round. You can choose between two sandy beaches here, Traeth Crigyll and Traeth Llydan. You can go wrong with either of these two as they can both be enjoyed by visiting families.
Rhosneigr is where you can find The Oyster Catcher cafe, which serves some of the best food you’ll find in these places.
Visit the Beaumaris Castle
Beaumaris is known as one of the best castles that were never built. It’s also the last stronghold and is considered the masterpiece of Edward I in Wales.
Because there are special events held at the Castle, you might want to time your visit to the Medieval Festival, which happens at the end of August. This can indeed be fun, especially for the kids. But even without the festivities, just roaming around an actual castle will be fun for the little ones.
Anglesey Sea Zoo
Did you know that you and your kids can see the best of British marine wildlife in Anglesey? Visit the Anglesey Sea Zoo and enjoy more than 40 tanks of incredible species, from tiny seahorses to jellyfish, octopus, and much more. It will be fun and educational as your kids will learn more about British marine habitats and the efforts done to help save marine life from one of the daily interactive talks.
Climb the Holyhead Mountain
Holyhead Mountain may be small, but it’s still going to be impressive for your kids looking for some outdoor adventure. If you want the easiest descent, you should head south off the summit and pick up a wide path that leads to the west. This, in turn, leads back to South Stack, where you’ll find the best route back to the car park where you started. Of course, you’d want to make sure that your children are up for long walks and a little scrambling before you decide to take them to Holyhead Mountain.
Visit the South Stack Lighthouse
You cannot go to Anglesey and not visit South Stack Lighthouse with your children. Mind you, going all the way to the top can tire the little ones, so you might want to time your visit to this spot as your last stop for the day because they might not have the energy for other activities after.
These are just some things that you can do with your children in Anglesey. Of course, there are many others that you can try depending on what you like to do. Aside from searching for Anglesey family trip ideas, equally important is finding the perfect accommodation. You want to make sure that you’re choosing a place that your family will remember, too.
