Picturescue place with cafes around it.

Next to the Menai Straight this is an interesting place and to sit and take in the view at one of the pavement cafes is charming. Evening time the views of the sunset are lovely.

Lovely walk around the dock looking at all the boats and wishing that I could sail away on one (in my dreams).

I took some great pictures visiting the doc. You can come from the castle and walk towards Galleria and at night time the lights and the sky is amazing. Gives you a good piece of mind. Just be safe and take someone with you.

Very good to stroll around this marina in the sunshine walking past the city walls that are being restored. Some beautiful yachts and boats there and the theatre looks good. However at night the restaurant appeared closed. The area did not have the buzz that Swansea or Bristol have for example. The Anglesey pub is a typical old boozer style... More

The dock has been transformed over the years and is now much tidier, plenty of room to have a stroll and take in the sea views. Worth a look

The area has had a facelift since I last visited. Hotels, cafes, shops, boats and toilets. The marina has boats moored waiting for high tide to set sale. Lovely area fir a stroll clean tidy and peaceful.
