We are an island county off the North West of Wales accessible by two road bridges and one rail bridge. From Holyhead you can cross to Ireland on fast and frequent ferries.
We have many interesting tourist and historical attractions on Anglesey from castles and beautiful beaches to a stone age village and ancient burial mounds. We are close to the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, and the mountains of the Llyn Peninsula can be seen from our shores.
We have self-catering indoor holiday accommodation at Anglesey Guide Centre, Penrhoslligwy, in an old converted school at the edge of a village 15 minutes walk from the beach. It is let in two sections (which can be combined). The school sleeps 29 in a dormitory and leaders’ room, and Ty Bodafon sleeps 13 in three bedrooms.
Covid-19: There are restrictions on capacity and facilities in place at present due to the pandemic. Contact us for further information.
No face to face meetings can take place at present. They will only start again when allowed by Girlguiding in line with Government guidance, and after risk assessments of properties and units have been completed.
However, Girlguiding has stayed active in new and imaginative ways over the past year. Many leaders have been sending out activities by post or e-mail for girls to do at home, and some of our units are meeting online. ‘Adventures at Home’ are freely available for everyone on the Girlguiding UK website.
Here on Anglesey, we held a Virtual Sleepover in November 2020 and recently launched 2nd Anglesey (Virtual) Guide and Ranger Unit which meets online. Find out more on our News page.
