Model Ship - Galtee More
Holyhead Maritime Museum

Holyhead Maritime Museum is a fascinating experience for the whole family. Step back in time at the oldest lifeboat station in Wales (circa. 1858), which houses a wonderful collection of exhibits telling the enthralling maritime history of Holyhead.

Situated alongside the Maritime Museum, in a Second World War Air Raid Shelter, is the very informative permanent exhibition "Holyhead at War".

Lynnon Working Windmill
Lynnon Working Windmill

Llynnon Mill, built in 1775, is the only working windmill in Wales producing stone-ground wholemeal flour using organic wheat. There are also two roundhouses providing a unique insight of the life of Iron Age farmers over 3000 years ago.

This Grist Mill is the only fully operational windmill on Anglesey. The Swoosh of its sails sweeping past is simultaneously exhilarating and frightening. You may be lucky on your visit for the miller to have set the sails to work. 

Many a young Anglesey child has run him or herself dizzy around the mill, which would probably explain its remaining a popular place to visit by Island people. It leaves an indelible image on one’s memory.

If it's a fine day enjoy a cuppa and fine cake at the tables outside of the delightful little mill café, the Llynnon Tea Room.

Barclodiad-y-Gawres Burial Chamber
Barclodiad-y-Gawres Burial Chamber
This chambered burial mound is located on the coast overlooking the bay, just 2 miles from the village of Aberffraw. Dating from circa 2500 BC (contempoary with the building of the Pyramids) it houses five original carved stones. To prevent any vandalising of these stones, the gate to the burial chamber is locked. Inside the top of the large mound a concrete mound has been laid to protect the interior. if you would like to visit Barclodiad-y-Gawres Burial Chamber please click the link for further info
The Copper Kingdom, Amlwch, Anglesey
The Copper Kingdom, Amlwch, Anglesey

The "Copper Kingdom" refers to the area of Amlwch on Anglesey, North Wales which once had the largest copper mine in the world.Copper was mined at Parys Mountain and then taken down to Amlwch Port where it was further processed and then shipped around the world. The Copper Kingdom Centre based in Amlwch Port tells the story.
Parys Mountain retains the scars of mining activity since 1768. A number of building and artefacts remain. However it is the vivid colours caused by the processes used to extract the ore which visitors admire today.
Visitors are encouraged to use the sign posted trails and viewing locations on the mountain.
