Holyhead, Wales, UK

Holyhead, Wales, UK

You’ll find the town of Holyhead at the nation of Wales’ northwesternmost tip, and in one of the most dramatic lighthouse scenes available anywhere, the landmass practically points across the sea towards Ireland. Holyhead today is scenic, but actually began as strategic — the city center you can still explore was originally the site of a Roman fort. Beyond Holyhead itself lies so much Welsh beauty across the Anglesey region: verdant hills, imposing castles, historic railways, neighboring villages and more. Plus don’t miss the local arts center or the charming pubs!
