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.
The Holyhead Seaport is a ferry port that serves as the primary link for crossing from North Wales to Ireland. Stena Line and Irish Ferries provide ferry service from Holyhead to Dublin via this port. Many travelers transfer to the seaport after traveling on a train or bus to Holyhead; these arrive at the nearby Holyhead Train Station and on Turkey Shore Road at the entrance to the ferry terminal. Nearby, there is a Travelodge, hotels, and supermarkets, but the town center of Holyhead is across the harbor. Pedestrians can access the town via the Celtic Gateway Bridge, a walk of about five minutes.
