Overview
More
An innovative artisan food company that lets visitors look behind the scenes of a family business and finishes with a tutored sea salt tasting. Our one-of-a-kind tour is recommended for anyone interested in salt’s place in our history, culture, food and in what makes Halen Môn Sea Salt a world-famous seasoning. The contemporary building sits well in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and houses a contemporary gift shop too full of wares from near and far (you don't need to book a tour to visit the shop.) Free use of purpose built car park, cycle racks, quality toilets and fantastic views in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Made a visit to Anglesey Sea Salt Company this weekend, with hindsight I would not have left home, or perhaps gone to a local shop to talk about salt. The tour was bland at best in my opinion, starting with a mind numbing video presentation...More
