Local information

With an area of 276 square miles, Anglesey is the largest island in Wales and the seventh largest in the British Isles. The Welsh name for the island is Ynys Mon, and the majority of its inhabitants are Welsh speakers. Its largest town is Holyhead, with most of the industry being adjacent to Holyhead Port and links to the important ferry services to Ireland.

To protect the aesthetic appeal of Anglesey's coastline, almost all of it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), protecting it from inappropriate development.

Easy access to the island is provided by the A55 expressway, via the Britannia Bridge across the Menai Strait.
