Town to stay in: Llangefni

 

Llangefni is¬†Anglesey’s county town and principal administrative centre. It is also a major cultural centre.

It is the principal commercial and farming town on the island proper (Holyhead being a port town and somewhat separate from the agricultural nature of the rest of the island), and in the past hosted the largest Cattle Market on the Island.

Currently. it contains principal offices of Anglesey County Council. The buildings and the layout of the town are practical rather than beautiful. The town lies at the centre of the island on the River Cefni and is home to the Oriel Ynys Mon museum, detailing the history of Anglesey and housing the legacy collection of Charles Tunnicliffe.

There is a relatively large industrial estate and includes a chemical manufacturer, a slaughterhouse and other small businesses.

Llangefni hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1957, 1983, and 1999.
