Historic Towns

The towns and villages of Anglesey are as diverse as the landscape.

Anglesey-victoriaVictoria Terrace, Beaumaris

The development of Amlwch was shaped by the copper industry, whereas villlages such as Cemaes and Moelfre have been influenced by their relationship with the sea.

Holyhead developed as a port around an ancient Roman settlement, and Beaumaris, with its 13th century castle, developed into a Victorian resort town and was also the municipal, administrative centre of Anglesey into the 19th century.
