There are a few key historic areas to visit: Swtan – islands is the home of the last remaining thatched cottage in the area, this operates as a Folk museum providing a great insight into the life of a peasant a hundred years ago displaying farm and fishing tools needed and used by those living off the land 100 years ago. The Discovery Den Exhibition is also a great place to learn about the island’s history from the origin of its farming, its industries, and hunters. The exhibit is varied and a fantastic opportunity to clue up on the island’s history. For another taste of history caravanners can head of Parys Mountain which was once a cooper mine which was one of the largest producers of copper in the world. This has resulted in an unusual landscape that is worth a look, following the weathering of ore deposits the landscape is unusually colourful and even has been used for film locations. To learn more about this visit the Copper Kingdom and view it interesting artefacts.
Take a boat trip to nearby islands, do a spot of fishing and catch your lunch to throw on the barbeque at your caravan site once you have worked up an appetite. If you would like to sample some of the local catch but don’t fancy trying to catch the fish yourself head to the Anglesey farmers market which takes place on the third Saturday on every month you can sample local fish as well as other local produce. Sea bass, lobster, goat’s cheese.
