Holyhead Certificated Locations

Holyhead is the biggest town in the Welsh county of Isle of Anglesey, but it isn't actually on the island at all. In fact, it has its own patch of land in the form of Holy Island, just off the coast.

The town is extremely popular with visitors on both sides of the Irish Sea thanks to its stunning scenery and opportunities to walk, sail, stroll along the beaches, fish and play golf.

However, there is plenty more to do here besides outdoor pursuits. Indeed, there is a host of shops and an out-of-town shopping centre, as well as lots of choice when it comes to places to eat and drink.

History buffs are sure to be pleased with Holyhead thanks to a wealth of historical attractions. St Cybi's church dates back to 550AD, but also stands on the site of a Roman fort and still retains its wall.

There is a Neolithic burial chamber a short walk away and a Bronze Age hut group on the slope of Holyhead Mountain too.

Other highlights include the Ucheldre Centre for art exhibitions and films, the Holyhead Maritime Museum and Breakwater Country Park.
