TROS YR AFON
The elegant seaside town of Beaumaris, painted and photographed by so many, stands proudly on the South Western shores of the Isle of Anglesey. The Snowdonia mountains sit magnificently across the Menai Straits, creating the perfect view.
Park your car knowing you can slow down for once. Everything in Beaumaris is within easy walking distance. A riot of restaurants awaits your taste buds and may tempt you away from hot stoves and standard fair. Take Fish and chips from Pier House Café to eat whilst watching the yachts tighten their sails as they pass the pier. Pop into Ye Olde Bull’s Head to enjoy their fire with a pint of their very finest ale. Cross the road to Tredici Delicatessen for local produce or pop to award winning Central Bakery – a must for picnics and leisurely breakfast feasts. One more night off draws you to The Midland Tapas and Wine Bar where your taste buds will be indulged and sated. Pubs, restaurants and tea rooms abound – no need to decide who’s driving as all are a flip flop away from where you are staying.
Wander along the shop lined High Street marvelling at the Beaumaris Jewellery Studio and all its gems, or stand before huge windows and admire carefully painted masterpieces in Janet Bell’s Gallery. The Redboat Ice cream Parlour has such a large selection of ice creams that you need at least two visits. Such a multitude of shops– from wine and wisdom to antiques, sofas and shoes – browse away for a valued keepsake from a happy holiday.
Explorers beware as you will be busy! Beaumaris Castle anchors the town to its past, rising up majestically for all to see the views that kept this thriving town safe for so long. Across from the castle is the courthouse, still working though more quietly now. In the midst of the town the old Gaol reminds you how hard life could be for those less fortunate than others. Souls were prayed for in the magnificent 14th century Church of St Mary’s and St Nicholas, stain glass windows and alabaster tombs abound. Walk along the Victoria Pier admiring the views and goings on. Give a respectful nod to the RNLI station standing guard to keep all who visit safe. Pop in and say hello to the crew as they prepare their boat for those in need. Take a boat trip along the Straits to Puffin Island.
Centrally positioned to explore the rest of Anglesey once you are rested – follow the Anglesey Coastal Path to Penmon Lighthouse and Penmon Priory where the pebbled beach makes all who visit smile; a meander along lanes to Llanddona Beach where miles of sand await the castle builders, swimmers and walkers. Visit the recently restored Hidden Gardens at Cadnant where impressed you will be by all that surrounds you –carry on to Plas Newydd, the National Trust house that commands the most magnificent views for all to share.
Explore Anglesey from beautiful Beaumaris – a town that holds a welcome throughout the year – the candy coloured houses cheer visitors on and remind them to return again and again.
