Wales Travel

Day trip

Yesterday we’ve made a day trip to Anglesey, Wales. As hubby took a lot of pictures, I’ve decided to make 3 more posts about the places we’ve visited.

Our first stop was South Stack Cliffs, see more on my blog. This is where I though we can have a lovely morning watching the birds and the sunrise. On BBC weather I’ve seen that it should be warm at 15 degrees, good visibility and it will not rain… The visibility was rubbish, the lighthouse had the light and sound signals on at 11am, it was raining and it was cold. Even so, we had a great day.


A bird of pray was watching us from far away. Luckily, my husband saw the bird, so we could enjoy it too.


The amazing cliffs, where the puffins and other birds are coming in a few weeks to nest. I thought they will be here, but I was wrong. The webcams from the RSPB reserve weren’t working, but hopefully they will be functioning to see when it’s the best time to see the birds.


On the way to the lighthouse, which was closed. It will open in early April, so we’ll be able to visit it next time. The views are amazing and the trip to the lighthouse is too beautiful to miss it.


A patch of beach on our way to the island.



In Holyhead is a very old Roman Fort, from the 4th century.


The church is built within the walls of the fort.




Our next stop was Beaumaris Castle, more picture & details in a dedicated post. Beaumaris is part of CADW and it’s very interesting. I would definitely recommend a visit.





Menai Suspension Brigde, we’ve passed by it on the way back. The bridge was built by Thomas Telford, the one who also built Pontcysyllte and Ironbridge. At the time when it was built, in 1826, it was the first modern suspension bridge in the world.
