Take a walk and gawk at the wondrous Beaumaris Castle. If you’re visiting in September, the Jaspels at Beaumaris Food Festival is usually running and is a great way to see the castle bustling with action, community and culture.

An unmissable spot to visit in the area is Plas Newydd House and Gardens, which is good for those looking to explore the museum and learn about the area’s history as well as ask a tour guide to teach them how to say the name of the surrounding area: Llanfairpwllgwyngyll. It’s also surrounded by beautiful gardens, parkland and woodland for those looking to explore the natural landscape surrounding the house and museum.

Those looking to mix the cultural enrichment element of exploring with some outdoor adventuring should look no further than Bryn Celli Ddu. The Welsh name translates to “the mound in the dark grove”, which helps to describe what it is: a prehistoric, Neolithic burial site with tomb chambers.
