Llanfairpwll is a town on the south coast of Anglesey - or should we say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch ?
The town officially has the longest name in the UK, and one of the longest in the world. The village website now also has the longest valid domain name. The name is actually a creation of the 19th century when the railway station was renamed to attract early tourists - and many still flock to see the sign, have their passport 'stamped' and visit the James Pringle Weavers Visitor Centre alonside the old station. And just to confuse matters the town is also known locally as Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, or even Llanfair PG.
This picturesque spot on the Menai Straits has many other attractions, including wonderful views of the natural scenery and the magnificent Victorian engineering of the Britannia bridge. Nearby is a towering monument to the 19th century Marquess of Anglesey, and the beautiful historic mansion of Plas Newydd, his ancestral home.
To the west towards Dwyran are the popular family attractions of Anglesey Sea Zoo, Foel Farm and Anglesey Model Village.
Quite a few attractions for you to visit around here, also try a day out going across the island to Holyhead. You could also pop over to the mainland and go south into Snowdonia.
