There is not much for tourists in the working town of Holyhead. It is the major departure point for ferries to Ireland. The surrounding coastline is very beautiful. You can find a progressive arts center here, the Ucheldre Center, housed in a converted church and hosting performances of film, drama, and live music on a regular schedule. Holyhead is also the starting point for the Lon Las Cymru cycling route, and the rugged coast line provides excellent opportunities for walking. To the west is Holyhead Mountain and at its western base is the South Stack Lighthouse, where you can climb 400 steps to enjoy magnificent views from the top. The main water sports center is at Trearddu Bay, about 2.5 miles south of Holyhead.
