Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens

Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and are being restored to their former glory. First laid out in 1804 in the 'picturesque' style of Humphrey Repton, the famous Victorian landscape designer, the gardens had become derelict by 1996. There are 10 acres of gardens, included a 2 acre Walled Garden, fantastic valley gardens packed with unusual and interesting plants, flowering shrubs and trees; river and waterfalls. Home made cakes are served in the traditional Tea Room. Visitor Centre describing the history and restoration of the gardens. In 2017 open 12noon-5pm on Weds/Thurs/Suns in April; Tues/Weds/Thurs/Suns May-Sep; Weds/Thurs/Suns in October. Pre-booked private group tours by appointment.

Menai Heritage - Canolfan Thomas Telford Centre

This community based museum tells the story of crossing the Menai Strait and celebrates the iconic, historic bridges and the famous engineers who built them. You can see artefacts from the original bridges, watch films of their reconstruction, try building a bridge or test your knowledge by doing the quiz, extend your visit with a walk over and under the Suspension Bridge or look for the lions on the Britannia Bridge and find out why the Menai Strait is so important for wildlife. Open every Wednesday and Thursday, Easter-October from 10:00-17:00 hours. Outside normal opening times, we are happy to welcome groups of 10 or more; please contact the office to discuss your visit. The Telford Centre can be found across from Waitrose, near the Menai Suspension Bridge.

Yesterday, as a family of 4 we attended the Menai Bridge Heritage walk with our extremely knowledgeable guide, Joanna. We have been to Anglesey many times before, but knew little of the history of the two bridges which connect the island to mainland Wales. The short walk along the stunning straits, was accompanied by some fascinating information from Joanna, who pitched the talk just right so that our two children, (aged 11 and 14) could keep up. A lovely way to spend a Sunday morning on Anglesey.

A great structure, iconic for Anglesey. Easy to walk across but if you park in Menai Bridge and head to the coastal path you can get up close to it
