Menai Bridge is the fifth largest Town on the Island of Anglesey with a population of just over 3,300. Overlooking the Menai Strait, the Town is accessed by the Menai Suspension Bridge, the remarkable engineering feat built by Thomas Telford in 1826 and from which the Town takes its English name from.
Other places of interest include the Belgian Promenade, constructed in 1914 by Belgian refugees who settled in the area and Church Island where St. Tysilio lived in the 9th Century.
The Town has many unique shops and businesses and is very popular with tourists throughout the year. New attractions include the renovation of Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens. Menai Bridge is also the home of the film set for S4C’s ‘Soap’ opera, ‘Rownd a Rownd’ and to the world renowned School of Ocean Sciences, which is part of the Bangor University.
