Things to do in Llanfair PG

Things to do in Llanfair PG

Famous because of its long name, this village is known throughout the world.  It’s full name is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogeryrchwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch which means The Church of St Mary in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio near a red cave, although it is usually shortened to Llanfairpwll or Llanfair P.G.  The station was opened in 1848 and the name combines a number of local place names.  It was the longest place name in an English speaking country, however this has been challenged. The station is still open and trains do stop, limited facilities at the station as the station in unmanned.

One of Llanfairpwll’s unusual claims to fame is that the Women’s Institute movement was founded here in 1915.

Another attraction in Llanfairpwll is the Marquess of Anglesey's Column, a Greek Doric Column dedicated to Henry William Paget, the first Marquess of Anglesey for his important part in the battle of Waterloo where he lost his leg. The monument was erected in 1817. There are 115 to climb to reach the top where panoramic views of North Wales can be enjoyed.  The monument is currently closed to the public due to health and safety fears regarding the stair case, however a charity group are currently fundraising for the monument to be re-opened.
