Môn Mam Cymru – ‘The mother island of Wales’

The Isle of Anglesey maybe considered small but as the fifth largest island off the coast of Britain, it provides a treasure trove of stunning historic and cultural sites to see on this full day island tour. Separated from the mainland by two bridges, you cross the narrow Menai Straits and almost immediately you can start to enjoy the stunning vistas across the scenic Menai Straits looking back into Snowdonia. Anglesey is an island full of intriguing places to discover and features 125 miles of stunning coastline wrapping the island in mystery and legends. From tranquil fishing villages, to beautiful bays, tucked away cosy pubs for nice lunch stops, historic castles, monuments, stately homes and gardens. The island is also home to Neolithic and Bronze Age communities, whose burial mounds remain. And to help you get acquainted with the local culture of Wales and how we name towns and villages, we drop by the town famous for the longest name in Wales, Britain and Europe - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

TOUR ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
No tour to Wales would be complete without visiting the town with the longest name in Britain. It just happens to be on Anglesey where we will stop by for photographs of the famous railway station names and also provide a pronunciation and translation for you and our famous competition!
The View
Enjoy one of the most scenic landscapes in the whole of Wales as you look down over the Menai Straits, with the famous suspension bridge, along with the fishing island and the magnificent backdrop of the Snowdonia and coastal mountains.
Thomas Telford Suspension Bridge
Stop off and enjoy a short scenic short walk along the waters edge, below the bridge and wandering along the ‘Belgium’ promontory to discover the 6th century church of St Tysilio on ‘Church Island’.
Beaumaris Castle
Here you can discover the last hurrah of Edward 1st massive medieval castle building programme in North Wale. Beaumaris Castle is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Penmon Priory
Discover this historic tranquil corner on the eastern tip of Anglesey, whose history spans more than 1,000 years. The origins of the site are traditionally associated with a Celtic saint in the sixth century. St Seiriol’s holy well survives from this period.
Country Inn
Our selected venue for lunch is a beautiful 18th century country inn, nestling in the corner of a picturesque, secluded bay.
Din Lligwy Ancient Village, Chapel and Burial Chamber
Hidden away in a corner of the island is one of Anglesey’s finest archaeological sites – the ancient Din Lligwy village. Nearby there’s the Lligwy Old Church and also the prehistoric Lligwy Burial Chamber that dates to the Neolithic period approximately 5,00 years ago.
Moelfre
A picturesque fishing and maritime village with a unique history, a working lifeboat station and museum, set amongst a stunning coastline and spectacular countryside. Our recommendation is to take time out to enjoy the beautiful panoramic walk along the sea cliffs, which takes approximately 90 minutes.
South Stack Lighthouse
One of the most spectacular coastal settings on the Isle of Anglesey. The view and locations are that impressive and we guarantee that you will want to photograph this location! There are 365 steps built into the cliff face. South Stack also offers a wealth of bird life and you could be lucky to see the odd seal or dolphin meandering through the Irish Sea from the RSPB’s Elin’s Tower and possibly a Puffin amongst the mass of seabirds.

It’s impossible to cover everything on the island all in one day. Our specialty is to design the perfect touring day around what you want to do and see. You might want to consider taking a walk along one of the sections of the coast or alternatively joining a spectacular Rib Ride on the water. If you are into history, then the island boasts some of the best preserved Neolithic Burial sites in the whole of Britain.

Coastal Walks
If you enjoy coastal walks, then we feature several sections of the 125 miles of coastline walks. Much of Anglesey’s coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – a lovely collection of sand dunes, coves and cliffs, with pretty villages and pebble beaches.

Some of the most popular sections that we feature include;

  • A superb beach walk out to remote island (Not accessible at high tide).

  • A superb cliff top walk from a harbour that takes you out around a spectacular coastal landscape of the island along the sea cliffs to where we meet you in a small isolated bay with a lighthouse on the headland.

  • Our most popular coastal walk takes in a historic cliff top walk that starts from a beautiful beach and ends at a fishing village.

These options take between 90 minutes and up to 3 hours in walking, but you are rewarded with amazing views and enjoying Anglesey at its natural best! It’s your tour, so if you select one of these walks to be incorporated into your touring day, you’ll not be disappointed.
Rib Ride
Take to the water to enjoy, explore and experience the stunning North Wales coastline from a completely different perspective. Take a one hour rib ride along the North Wales coastline with its rugged coastline aboard a high speed rib that operate on the Menai Straits. *Tickets start from £25 per person.
Neolithic burial chambers and Standing Stones
Anglesey’s rich history can be traced back to more than 5,000 years ago. We have focused on three sites, two of which are amazing burial sites that you could choose to visit as part of your tailor-made island tour, along with the finest pair of standing stones.

Tour Testimonial and Endorsement

“Simple excellence!”

Boutique Tours of Wales provided a fantastic tour experience for our American friends who were on their first visit to Wales.

The outline itinerary was agreed beforehand, but the touring they delivered was simply outstanding! They took us to places we would never have seen on our own, all complimented by the tour guide’s unique story-telling and encyclopedic knowledge of the region.

This was definitely a five-star experience and one we hope to repeat.
Tony Morris from Nottingham, United Kingdom
