Castle
“Half finished castle with walks along the crumbling walls and the odd dungeon to explore. A beautiful restored chapel has modern stained glass and there is an interesting audio visual presentation. It is managed by Cadw and I think there may be an app you can download for an audio tour - check with reception ”

“Beaumaris - LL58 8AP - 01248 810329 Here you can choose between the informal ‘Brasserie’ downstairs (in the shape of a tasteful ‘traditional’ bar), or upstairs their elegant ‘fine dining’ restaurant called ‘The Loft’ (a wooden conservatory space). Housed in a 400-year-old building, this place provides a superb mix of traditional and modern dining. With its roaring fires, cask ales, tartan carpets & dark woodwork downstairs - and light & airy feel upstairs - this well-known watering hole - right in the centre of beautiful Beaumaris - provides both a cosy, yet contemporary dining-out experience. With ‘The Loft’ menus put together by award-winning chef, Hefin Roberts, you’ll never be disappointed! Known for using locally sourced ingredients & produce in imaginative ways, his unique combinations are just delicious! Please check their website for opening times. ”

“Neaumaris - LL58 8BB - 01248 810429 The Midland, with its chic and understated decor (which has breathed new life into this beautiful old ban (hence the name) has proved VERY popular since its opening! The only downside is the sheer variety on the menu - which leaves you struggling to know which options to go for! True to its Spanish roots though, there are things like Jamon Iberico & Patatas Bravas - but they’ve cleverly managed to mix these up with Welsh recipes - as well as seafood, and ‘garden’ flavours; which makes the whole experience so much more interesting and varied! As with all the best Anglesey eateries, there’s an emphasis on local produce - especially on seafood - and it’s loads of fun getting to try lots of different dishes! So, if you like mixing & matching your meals - this is the place for you! Open in winter (from November until the end of March) from Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm-3pm, then again from 5pm – until last orders (but closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Open in Summer (from Easter to November)7 days a week, from 12pm – until last orders. Glutenfree, vegetarian and vegan options available. ”

“This now disused gaol and courthouse has a surprisingly interesting audio guide tour which kept our primary school age children interested for several hours.”

Café
“Beaumaris - LL58 8BB - 01248 810022 Located in the heart of Beaumaris - in a marvellous medieval property - it’s the perfect place to enjoy the finest ice cream Anglesey has to offer…with lots of other tasty treats upstairs in their restaurant area too! Run by the lovely Tony and Lyn, they do sorbets as well - and with ice-cream flavours such as crème brûlée, bara brith, rhubarb crumble & jammy dodger, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Upstairs they offer savoury & sweet pancakes, pizzas, soups, sandwiches, ciabattas, dessert waffles - and even breakfast options – so there’s something for everyone in this pretty parlour. By the way, Tony trained in the art of ice cream making at the world famous Carpigiani University, Italy - so you’re in safe hands! Made fresh on the premises - you can be sure it’s be the best tasting ‘gelato’ for miles! Open daily: 10am - 5pm - they only close on Christmas Day! You’ll also see them out & about (working hard as usual) in their mobile ice-cram stall at outdoor events and so on! ”

Hotel
“Hotel with a cafe containing a large assortment of mismatched leather armchairs. Have a cup of tea or coffee on a rainy day and watch the world go by on Beaumaris sea-front. A hidden gem.”

Point of Interest
“Fancy a trip to Puffin island and hopefully see some puffins, then check out Seacoast Safaris in Beaumaris. May to Mid August is the best time to sea any Puffins, as they only visit the Island during breeding season. Worth a trip during this time of the year! You might even be lucky enough to see Dolphins and Sealions on your way!”

Pier
“Great for crabbing with the kids or for a leisurely romantic walk with your loved one. Stunning views of the Menai Straits, Snowdonia and the Great Orme.”

Travel Agency
“Narrated cruise from the pier at Beaumaris out to Puffin island. You can often see seals and puffins at the right time of year. There are usually spaces available to book on the day, but in busy summer holidays you may need to hang around Beaumaris for a few hours before a place is free (see Beaumaris entry to realise this is no hardship!)”

“Beaumaris - LL58 8BS - 01248 811055 Although there are loads of other lovely places to eat-out in Beaumaris, we always seem to end up here! Situated just behind the town’s littlee pier, and with stunning sea views available (both inside and out) it really is a sweet little spot! Offering drinks, breakfasts, lunch & supper, their speciality sandwich melts, homemade soups, steak & ale pie, fillet steaks, and Welsh rarebit are all excellent! They also have a good choice of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options - and a great children's menu too. They’ve already been voted the 3rd best seafood restaurant in Anglesey on TripAdvisor; which isn’t surprising if you’ve tried their famous homemade fish & chips (in gin and tonic batter), Menai mussels, or dressed crab salad! Sitting outside - (over-looking the Menai Strait across to Snowdonia), with a hot chocolate in hand and local treat on your plate, is simply delightful! In summer they’re open daily from 8am - 9.30pm – and the rest of the year from Monday - Friday, 9am- 9pm – with Saturday and Sunday hours being from 8.30am - 9pm. ”
