You may be visiting the pretty town of Beaumaris and its Edwardian castle, why not come on a guided bike tour with us to learn more about the area before, and after the castle was built!

On this ride, we skirt around the back of Beaumaris for an unusual view of Edward I’s fortress, before revealing some of the secrets of this fascinating South East corner of Anglesey, reaching Anglesey’s easternmost tip at Penmon Point, with its views across the narrow sound towards Ynys Seiriol or Puffin Island.

Medieval Anglesey

We cycle through what was once Anglesey’s main commercial hub in medieval times, visit the ruins of Penmon Priory and share the tale of another priory now totally lost to history.

Our route touches the coastline as we cycle towards Penmon Point or Trwyn Du and its enigmatic lighthouse and visit the Pilot House Café for light refreshments!

On our return, we change the activity for a while, and walk through a community woodland to visit a mock castle at the site of the Normans’ first castle on Anglesey.

This is a fairly short ride at 11.5 miles- with a few small hills. That’s because our time is spent exploring the many fascinating places of interest along the route!
