We parked at Waitrose car park and walked with our dogs through the woods to Church Island along the causeway. The island is a peaceful place with lots of Welsh language graves and the prettiest little church . We had sandwiches on a bench with wonderful views. A nice way to spend a couple of hours!

We parked up at the small pay and display just passed Waitrose and followed the signs down to Church Island and round to the Menai Bridge. It is so peaceful in the churchyard and the simple church on the island. The walk round the Belgium Promenade gives you some fantastic views of both the Britannia and Menai bridges and you... More

we were on a small North Wales tour and wanted to include a short hop over to Angelsea and we read about this little old church, it is in a great position and easy to get to. It has existed since 680AD which is brilliant and a lovely place for a picnic lunch (compliments of the local Waitrose very nearby)

I have known about this place since I was a child, and have visited frequently over the years with my own parents, friends, and my own family. I love the walk through the trees to get to the tiny St Tysilio's church, and if you walk up the steps to the Celtic Cross, the views of the Menai Straits are... More

There is a pay and display car park beside the Jade Village Chinese restaurant, past Waitrose coming from the Menai Bridge. It costs 90p for an hour or £1.20 for two. From there, it is a pleasant walk down through the (Red Squirrel) woods to the causeway across the water to the island where the tiny church of St Tysilio... More

An Amazing Yew tree. Some very old intricately carver headstones and great to spot the birds on the straits whether the tide is in or out.
