Things to do - Isle Of Anglesey

Holyhead is on Holy Island in North Wales, a busy port with both traditional and the new fast ferries sailing to Dun Laoghaire and Dublin in Ireland. Holyhead has since become Anglesey's largest town with a population of just over 12,000 as it lies at the very end of the A5 road that begins hundreds of miles away at Marble Arch in London. Evidence of the Romans and Celts goes back for at least seventeen centuries in Holyhead, and the signposts to the Irishmens Huts on Holyhead mountain point the visitor to the remains of a large Celtic settlement that thrived between the 2nd and 4th Century. An interesting remnant of the past is the parish church of St. Cybi. The churchyards rectangular walls were part of a Roman fort built in the third or fourth century
