Holyhead Breakwater Country Park


For an enjoyable day out in Anglesey’s beautiful countryside visit the Holyhead Breakwater Country Park. It is situated next to the town and port of Holyhead.

The Holyhead Breakwater Country Park was opened in 1990 and is situated on the site of an old quarry which supplied stone for the 2.39km (1.5 miles) Holyhead Breakwater, the longest in Europe, which was built between 1846 and 1873. Part of the park is situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The park captures the scenic beauty, history and natural appeal of Anglesey all on one site and has a great deal to offer:
