Attraction Information:

The name of this world-famous station and village was created in the early nineteenth century by a local humorist.

The name in Welsh is:-


which in English means 'Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio near the red cave.

The station of Llanfair PG (the usual abbreviation) was the first on Anglesey, and opened in 1848. After a twenty year closure in 1973 to 1993, it reopened in 1994 having been restored by James Pringle Weavers, a shop and visitor centre next to the station building well worth visiting. During your visit you could also have lunch in the 'Sidings Restaurant'.
