Getting to Rhoscolyn: Our Travel Tips

So, you’ve decided to visit our lovely village – great! Here’s how to get here.

Whilst we are a bit off the beaten track (thank goodness!), whether you are coming from London, Liverpool or even erm…Lisbon, Rhoscolyn is really easy to travel to.


By Car

Cross the Britannia Bridge onto Anglesey, continue along the A55 dual carriageway.  Come off at Junction 3, into the village of Valley.  Turn left at the Valley traffic lights, then turn left in Four Mile Bridge (signposted to Rhoscolyn and The White Eagle), and continue to Rhoscolyn.

Approximate drive times:

  • Liverpool: 1hr 45mins
  • Chester: 1hr 30 mins
  • Manchester: 2hrs 15 mins
  • London: 5 hrs
By Train

The nearest mainline station is Holyhead which is a 5 mile taxi ride from Rhoscolyn. Some Arriva trains will stop at Valley also, which is just 3 miles away. Pick the right train, and you can travel from London Euston to Holyhead in 3hrs 45 mins.

Useful sites for booking tickets:

By Plane

We jest not – Anglesey boasts its very own airport.  Two flights a day, Monday to Friday from Cardiff. Although you will need to travel light.

By Bus

Bus service 23 runs from Holyhead to Rhoscolyn and back again.

See all local bus routes and timetables.

By Bike

Lots of visitors arrive by bike, some will even bring their bike on the train to Valley and cycle on from there.  Anglesey is relatively flat, and with many quiet lanes, lends itself to a cycling holiday or simply making a day trip across the Island to Rhoscolyn.  Sustrans has more information on cycle routes here.

Bikes are also available to hire locally from Cybi Bikes.

On Foot

If you are working your way around the coastal footpath, or simply looking for a destination for your next walk on Anglesey, then Rhoscolyn is a great place to aim for.  Whether you are coming over the headland from Trearddur Bay past the lookout or round the coast from Four Mile Bridge via Silver Bay, a quick dip in the bay to cool off followed by a cold drink and some good food at The White Eagle will finish the day off perfectly!


There are a good selection of local taxi services, including:

Car Hire

There are a number of companies operating in the area.  If you are arriving at Holyhead train station, we recommend Hertz. If you are flying in from Cardiff to Anglesey Airport, use Europcar.

By Ferry

There are daily sailings by Stena Line and Irish Ferries between Dublin and the port of Holyhead which is only 5 miles by taxi, bus or hire car from Rhoscolyn.
