Home of the Marquess of Anglesey, with spectacular views of Snowdonia.Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association, containing his largest painting and exhibition.A military museum contains relics from the 1st Marquess of Anglesey's tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo.There's a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, a summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.A woodland walk gives access to a marine path beside the Menai Strait.

Overlooking the Menai Straits and nestling in beautiful woodland Plas Newydd is packed with fascinating history of the Marquis of Anglesey and his family. Do not judge the house by the first view as you approach. Go around to the straits side, it's lovely.

The house is full of character and contains more modern history than some of the other Trust properties that I've visited, so offers a different kind of visit. Rex Whistler definitely makes the house a more interesting, his paintings are very clever. A huge thank...More

A very interesting house and gardens in a lovely location. Some very interesting rooms and the full wall painting was something else.

Situated on the Menai Straits with astounding views. The house is worth the visit, several cafes on site. The guides do a first class job.

A country house with an interesting history. The gardens are nice to potter around. Hunt for the tree house in the gardens for a nice surprise

The grounds alone are magnificent with commanding views over the Menai Straits. There are walks through both wooded and landscaped areas and it's a truly wonderful...More
