Holyhead Guide

Located on Holy Island, which at one point was connected to Anglesey via the Four Mile Bridge, the town of Holyhead is the largest town, and port, in Anglesey, Wales. A local philanthropist in the mid 19th century, however, funded the building of a causeway, "The Cobb", which to this day carries the main road and railway to and from Holyhead. There are many places in the town centre to eat with all the usual shops and facilities you would expect to find in a town of its size. There is also a cinema and theatre. Holyhead is often used as an overnight stop to, or from, the port and as a result there are many different places to stay that will suit all budgets. Around Holyhead there is excellent fishing, golfing and sailing facilities. Couple this with the wonderful scenery, walks and beaches and you can easily lose yourself and relax for a few days.
