Places of Interest: Amlwch Port and Parys Mountain

The old harbour at Amlwch Port is well worth a visit. The visitor centre and coffee shop exhibits memorabilia from Amlwch’s shipbuilding and mining days.

See examples of the ‘copper currency’ once paid as miners’ wages, together with some interactive displays. Pick up a heritage trail leaflet for details of the self-guided walk around the port and nearby Parys Mountain , amid amazing open cast remains, often likened to a lunar landscape. Guided tours can be arranged for specialist groups (aged 17 and over).
