Beaumaris is a well known historic town on the Menai Strait with its medieval castle dating back to the reign of Edward I and its Victorian pier, gaol & courthouse. It is also a major centre for yachting and also boasts two golf courses within one mile of the town. The town has a full range of facilities including the Olde Bulls Head Inn recommended by CAMRA. See www.beaumaris.org.uk for further information. Much of this route is along roads but stunning views of the Menai Straits and the Menai bridges. The Menai Bridge was opened in 1826, one of the classic design and engineering projects of Thomas Telford. The path also passes the village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, reputedly the longest place name in Europe! The Auckland Arms, the Tafarn y Bont and Victoria Hotel at Menai Bridge are recommended by CAMRA so do pop in for a well deserved drink!
