North Wales is a favourite with families.
Children can come face to face with local wildlife, discover Welsh towns on a steam train, go wild in a family forest park and plenty more. This list only scratches the surface of what’s on offer here:
Glistening in the summer, dark and moody in the winter, our waters never fail to relax and cleanse the soul.

A visit to North Wales means you’ll be surrounded by breathtaking views.Beaumaris has some of the most mesmerising over the Menai Strait, Snowdonia and its pretty Victorian pier. Simply stunning come rain or shine.
Penmon Point, Church Island, South Stack, Red Wharf Bay and Llanddwyn Island are five of many spots worthy of a drive to soak up the views
On your travels around many North Wales towns, you’ll find one thing in common – a majestic Edwardian castle standing alongside modern daily life.
One of the finest of these is less than a minute’s walk from The Bull. This is where you’ll find the unfinished masterpiece that is Beaumaris Castle. The other Edwardian ‘greats’ are in the nearby towns of Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech.
The enchanting Plas Newydd and Penrhyn Castle are the two most popular National Trust sites near Beaumaris.
Plas Newydd on Anglesey, is a 19th century Welsh mansion with pretty gardens beside the shore of the Menai Strait where you can indulge in an impressive exhibition of Rex Whistler paintings.
The grand Penrhyn Castle, unlike other Edwardian Castles around North Wales, is a 19th-century fantasy castle with spectacular surroundings.
Both make for a lovely relaxing day out.
Anglesey can be a windy island and where there’s wind, there are windmills! In fact, almost 50 were built in the 18th and 19th centuries. Many are now in disrepair but some have found exciting new life.
One of the most impressive is Melin Llynnon in North West Anglesey which is once again producing flour. Perfect for Welsh cakes!
Our galleries give you a different way to learn about Anglesey’s history and culture.
Some of the impressive work of Welsh landscape painter, Sir Kyffin Williams permanently hangs in the Oriel Ynys Mon in Llangefni alongside seasonal exhibitions from other local artists. You can also learn about Anglesey’s rich history and culture here.
Other galleries not to miss are Beaumaris’ Janet Bell Gallery, opposite The Bull and the Tegfryn Gallery in Menai Bridge.
If you enjoy the finer things in life, i.e. tasty food, here are 5 you shouldn’t miss when in Anglesey:
1. Welsh Black beef– tender!
2. Menai Mussels– fresh!
3. Welsh crab– tasty!
4. Welsh cakes– naughty!
5. Anglesey Sea Salt – distinct!
Many of these delicious foods are often found on our menus in The Bull.
You can also buy them in the Anglesey Farmers Markets, Tredici’s Deli opposite The Bull or in Hootons Homegrown Farm Shop.
This farm shop works in food metres, not miles. Hooton’s grow their own fruit and vegetables and rear their own livestock which are carefully prepared on site. Their extra fresh produce is then sold in their farm shops and used to create mouth-watering dishes.
You can also pick your own strawberries, blackcurrants, rhubarb, peas and broad beans.
Welsh food festivals are a mouth-watering day out, each having their own personality:
Menai Seafood Festival (2017 date tbc) is as you guessed it all about fresh seafood. Welsh food producers congregate in this coastal town for one day only to serve you fresh seafood in a variety of tasty guises.
Beaumaris Food Festival (2 & 3 Sept) takes place on the beautiful Beaumaris Green overlooking the Menai Strait. Here you’ll be introduced to Wales’ finest food and drink. Come along to the Bull’s pop up where we’ll be serving food to suit your mood on both days.
The food centre is an award winning farm shop showcasing fine Welsh foods and drink produced on site and from suppliers across Wales. This is where you can discover the true taste of Wales! If you’re not content with just tasting the food, there are also fun cookery courses to get your teeth stuck into.
