Beaumaris Castle is a United Nations World Heritage Site which was built as one of the iron ring castles of North Wales by Edward I to stamp his authority on the Welsh. It was never finished but is nevertheless called the “most technically perfect Medieval Castle in Britain.” Opposite Beaumaris Castle is the Court House, constructed in 1614 and renovated in the 19th Century. Here visitors can walk through the large rectangular courtroom, stand in the original dock and view the splendour of the grand jury room. Beaumaris Gaol was built by Hansom (famous for the Hansom Cab) in 1829 and features the only working tread wheel in Britain.

Nearby in Church Street stands the 14th Century Church of St Mary and St Nicholas which houses the empty coffin of Princess Joan, wife of Prince Llywelyn Fawr and daughter of King John of England. The location of her body remains a mystery but her effigy is carved into the coffin lid. There are two more very well preserved historic buildings – the Court House, constructed in 1614 and the Victorian Gaol in Steeple Lane. A popular visitor option is a two-hour cruise around Puffin Island, with a chance to see puffins, seals and other wildlife at close quarters.

Stroll along the banks of the Menai Strait on an idyllic summer evening and marvel from the rocky
shoreline as the impressive vastness of Snowdonia turns a unique blushing pink in the sunset.

It's the end of one more perfect day in Beaumaris , Anglesey's best-kept secret. Beaumaris with its 13th-century castle and Victorian Pier where a cluster of cottages, quaint inns, restaurants and individual shops huddle together against ferocious winds that in winter roar uninterrupted down the Irish Sea.

Charles Dickens and Dr Johnson were among the first to discover the charms of a resort that now attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year to its magical blend of individual designer boutiques, award-winning hotels and friendly pubs.

A couple of miles away lies Penmon, which lies at the very heart of an area of natural beauty - and all around are swathes of beautiful Blue Flag golden sands, rugged rock-strewn headlands and some of the finest recreational pursuits to be found anywhere.

GOLF, RIDING, SHOOTING, FISHING, SAILING, SURFING,
CYCLING and MOTOR SPORT are all available locally

If you don't want to join organised pursuits, there's fine walking on your own doorstep - from strenuous mountain hikes in Snowdonia to peaceful strolls down primrose-hedged lanes with only the occasional rabbit or hare for company.

And never forget Penmon Point itself, the rugged bay where a lighthouse stands sentinel against breath-taking northerly winter gales that sweep down the Irish Sea and a monotonous toll chimes a warning to mariners in fair weather and foul of the dangers beneath churning waves.

Penmon.
Wild and wonderful.
A little piece of paradise
