Things To Do
Family fun is no.1 on the agenda right? So it's a good thing there are plenty of fun family activities to try out with your little ones. From Rex Whistler's iconic 58-foot mural to 40 acres of impressive gardens and 129 acres of woodland!
Head for the treetops in the Adventure Playground in Dairy Woods. Absorb magnificent views of the Welsh countryside or take to action! Balance on beams, swing on ropes and hop along the stepping stones. This area is surrounded by picnic benches, so it’s also the perfect place to stop for some lunch!
Get your sporting hats on and try out the frisbee golf course - there are acres of garden to practice your throws and catches. There are lots of various woodland walks too, including a mesmerising marine walk along the Menai Straits.
Got some nature lovers in the family? Plas Newydd is a great place to spot red squirrels, so bring your binoculars and scour the treetops to see if you can spot one. They can be spotted throughout the woodlands, particularly in Church Bank Wood and along the edge of the Menai Strait.
The historic house is the home of the Marquess of Anglesey and offers spectacular views of Snowdonia! This is one of the UK's finest mansion house settings, and it also features emotive exhibitions in the military museum. Browse relics from the Battle of Waterloo or find out what life was like for the family back in the 1930s. Take a first-hand look at Rex Whistler's largest-ever painting.
Plus there's also the world's first articulated wooden leg to be found in The Museum, and you can visit a historical room which has been left untouched since its untimely departure by the 7th Marquess! Fine fuel for imaginative kids, dusty antiquities… Plas Newydd offers an unbeatable adventure, fantastic views, extensive woodland walks, beautiful scenery and one of the prettiest houses in Wales!
