| Events in Aberffraw | 10 Places to Stay

Aberffraw is a small village on Anglesey reached via the A4080. Historically this was the most important place in Wales for 800 years the Welsh kings and princes used the royal palace here as a base from which to repel invasions from Ireland. The wooden palace was destroyed by the Vikings in 968 but Aberffraw again reigned supreme as the home of Prince Llewellyn Fawr ap Iorwerth (1173- 1240). This place is steeped in history. You can visit the ancient burial chamber more than 4500 years old and see the oldest human markings in the country on the stones inside. Its a bit spooky so tread carefully and these days the passage in is guarded by iron gates bizarrely you collect the keys from the local shop and take a torch with you. Aberffraw may also hold dark secrets from Victorian times as Dr William Thomas who committed suicide in 1888 was reputed to be the real Jack the Ripper. If you prefer to stay in the sunlight, visit Bae Trecastle( Cable bay in English as the Atlantic telegraph terminated here.) Its safe and sandy with views toward the Church of Llangwyfan set on an isolated islet in the bay.
