Anglesey is an island in Wales, just off the mainland’s northwest coast. There are so many things to do in Anglesey with Kids and it makes for a perfect weekend or week long break.
It’s known for its beaches and ancient sites. You even get to Angelsey using the 19th-century Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, which are sights in themselves.
Anglesey is also a great place to stay as it doesn’t take that long to get from North to South or East to West. All of the following amazing things to do in Anglesey with kids are in easy reach.
A favourite area of ours in Anglesey is Rhosneigr and not just in summer, Rhosneigr is a popular all year round. There are two sandy beaches – Traeth Crigyll and Traeth Llydan, both great for family holidays and surfing.
Rhosneiger is also home to The Oyster Catcher café with its funky bar, good food and beach huts on the balcony!
Just take you time in this pretty little place, eat ice cream, play on the beach and generally soak up the sky.
Tip: Rhosneiger is the perfect place to play some of our Free Beach Games
Beaumaris on Anglesey is famous as the greatest castle neverbuilt. It was the last of the royal strongholds created by Edward I in Wales – and perhaps his masterpiece.
There are often special events that take place at the Castle and it would be worth trying to combine a visit with the Medieval Festival at the end of August which is now in its 10th year. Perfect for kids.
Even if the festival isn’t on though it’s a lovely day out with the kids.
If you’d like to stay in Beaumaris then Wales Cottage Holidays have a lovely property right in the middle of Beaumaris Yr Hen Fanc
This spacious town house, sleeps nine people, and is above the famous Janet Bell art gallery where it will be hard not to be tempted by the delightful local paintings and prints on offer. The accommodation is over the first and second floor but with a ground floor garden accessed via steps from the first floor.
Beaumaris Gaol is full of sad memories and secrets providing a fascinating insight into the world of the prisoner during the 1800s. You can walk along the dimly lit corridors and explore the spartan cells and places of punishment. It can be quite dark and a little scary for younger children though so do take into account some of the views on tripadvisor before you visit.
