Home of the Marquess of Anglesey, with spectacular views of Snowdonia.
Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association and contains his exquisite romantic mural and the largest exhibition of his works.
A military museum contains relics from the First Marquess of Anglesey’s tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo.
There’s a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, an italianate-style summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.
A woodland walk gives access to a marine path beside the Menai Strait.
From the house and grounds, the views across the Menai Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia are simply stunning.
