Inspired by Anglesey while watching Julia Bradbury’s Best Walks with a View? We’ve picked the very best here for you on the Isle of Anglesey. The largest island in Wales and England, Anglesey boasts an inspirational coastline that’s almost all (95%) a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We discover 63 miles of the Anglesey Coast Path, picking out the highlights of the island, including South Stack, Llanddwyn island, Lligwy Bay, Bwa Gwyn sea arches, Penmon Point & Priory. Watch out for wildlife, with chances to spot puffins, porpoise and seals (season dependent) and step back in time to discover ancient island life – the island is home to the largest concentration of ancient sites in Wales. Also explore more recent history with the old Brick works, Bromine works and Power Station. Enjoy being guided on the best walks the island has to offer, and relax knowing all your accommodation, transport and meals are taken care of, you just need to put on your boots and enjoy the journey. Please note that the itinerary may run in a different order than advertised due to tide times and bad weather.
