Holyhead is one of Wales’ most north-westerly towns and serves as a busy ferry port, with Dublin just 90 minutes away across the Irish Sea.
This historic port has seen more than its fair share of shipwrecks over the years and over 100 are documented at the Holyhead Maritime Museum. Another piece of Holyhead history can be found atop the granite cliffs that stretch out into the sea. South Stack Lighthouse is a great reason to take a brisk walk along the Holyhead coastline and, with its staggering views, is an ideal lookout point for spotting dolphins, porpoises and seabirds.
The town of Holyhead itself is home to a cinema, a theatre, a number of good restaurants and some wonderful Welsh holiday cottages, making it a popular base for tourists who want to explore the whole island of Anglesey.
Holyhead is steeped in history, with captivating stories such as that of Captain Skinner, a popular seafarer in the town who ran a packet ship to Dublin for 33 years before being killed in a wreck just half an hour from home. His monument stands proudly looking out to sea near the Maritime Museum.
Other famous Holyhead sons and daughters include the actress Dawn French, the poet RS Thomas and Commonwealth gold medallist Raymond Williams.
