Amlwch Copper Kingdom


The old mine-workings at Mynydd Parys are visually stunning, set in a landscape of wonderful red, yellow and purple coloured rocks. The resemblance to the surface of the moon has led to science-fiction films being made here! Heritage trails on the mountain allow you to discover for yourself the vast man-made opencast pits and ruined mine-buildings.

Porth Amlwch retains many original buildings to explore, like the Copper Bins, the Watch House and the Workshop Chimneys. At the Sail Loft Visitor Centre, enjoy a delicious snack or browse the gift shop but don’t miss the exhibition of Amlwch’s world renowned ship-building heritage. In fact, the Porth is a wonderful place in which to simply relax and watch the activity in the harbour!

The Porth Amlwch Heritage trail forms part of the Anglesey Coastal Path, which is readily accessible from it.
