Holyhead is the largest town in the Isle of Anglesey county in the northwest of Wales. Although primarily known for its busy port with ships sailing to and from Ireland, the town also has numerous attractions and many popular shopping areas and restaurants.

With its rugged coastline and fresh sea air, it would be a shame to visit Holyhead without enjoying one of its many coastal walks. Breakwater Country Park offers audio trails, themed walks, and a unique gallery, as well as access to the South Stack RSPB bird-watching reserve.

If the weather isn't suited to coastal walks, then head inside to Holyhead Maritime Museum to discover Wales' oldest lifeboat station, as well as a collection of exhibits that tell of the fascinating maritime history of Holyhead. Holyhead is also home to a theatre and a cinema if you need to take the weight off your feet after hiking by the sea.

You can travel to Holyhead via car, ferry, rail, and even plane. Take the scenic route and enjoy the North Wales Expressway by car, or arrive at Holyhead Station via West Midlands Railway or Virgin Trains. Anglesey Airport also offers direct daily flights from Cardiff and Norwich.
