The local area guide to living in Menai-Bridge

Menai-Bridge is one of the many quaint towns in Anglesey, sat on the South East side of the island. It’s one of the region’s biggest towns, but smaller than Holyhead, which is home to Anglesey’s biggest population. Perhaps best known for its bridge, Menai Suspension Bridge, built in 1826, the small town overlooks the Menai Strait and is a short drive away from the bustling university town of Bangor.

While small, the town does have all the usual amenities like shops, supermarkets and schools. It also stars in one of S4C’s popular dramas, Rownd a Rownd, which is filmed in the High Street area. Menai Bridge isn’t just home to its full-time residents though; the region has also become a popular spot for holidaymakers thanks to its laid-back pace of life.
