I thought it would be fun to share with you a post about one of the top most visitor destinations on the island of Anglesey. We got there quite early so the photos I quickly snapped don’t really give you any idea of quite how busy this place gets….normally coachloads of American and Chinese tourists are swarming this little Welsh village, that has the longest name of any place in the UK. (and almost of the world!)
Yep. The title of the post really is the name of the place!
Try saying it.
Which when translated from Welsh is : The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio’s of the red cave.
When we’re in North Wales we usually try to get over to Angelsey because it’s a stunningly beautiful place (see the Newborough post for proof!) and while there we often pay a visit to this place as it sells a lot of inexpensive, but good quality clothing and footware…and best of all it has a cafe!
Sadly on the occasion of this particular visit I didn’t get a snap of the greeting lady wearing traditional Welsh dress…but usually when the coaches are due in she goes out to the front of the building to greet visitors….and as I said, we got there a bit early that day.
Here’s a pic of the signpost inside the entrance of the old station building….can you spot your country name on there?
