Lovely place - history and a stunning view

You firstly drive up to Penmon Priory and the church. It's interesting to look at- especially the stone crosses inside the church. The Dovecot is huge! Then you pay a £3 toll to... read more

You firstly drive up to Penmon Priory and the church. It's interesting to look at- especially the stone crosses inside the church. The Dovecot is huge! Then you pay a £3 toll to drive to the parking place at Penmon Point. Great place for a picnic as there is the light house and Puffin Island to look at. At high... More

We originally just went up to see Penmon Priory which is very nice and a visit to the church and well. We paid £3 on the toll road to get to the lighthouse at the point, on a clear day you can see Puffin Island but it was a bit foggy when we went and the tide was in but... More

I've been here a few times over the years. You drive up to the church, there is a parking area there, and then there's a toll point (£3), beyond which you can drive up to Penmon Point. The sign at the toll when I visited this year implied that you had to pay the toll to park at the church.... More

Wanted a closer view of Puffin Island so decided to drive to Penmon Point. Was pleasantely suprised to find more there than expected. The ruined monastry, dovecot and church might not be to everyones taste and the £3 parking and toll but the view and cafe are worth it. After we had looked at the monastry we were suprised when...

Visited Penmon with disabled daughter, we drove to the point and enjoyed scones and coffee before having a walk to the lighthouse. My daughter is in a wheelchair and although the paths are uneven we managed to get her someway to the beach before having to stop. the beach is rocky so is in accessible for wheelchairs, but it was...

We arrived without knowing there was a toll. On the way back from this average viewing spot we found traffic cones blocking our way so the dirty troll collector could his £3 for use of a road that is a total disgrace. Full of potholes. I complained and was told I should not have "brought my new car so piss... More

Had a fantastic afternoon at Penmon Point superb views to the mainland and it's snowy mountains and to Puffin Island. Bring your camera and binoculars to get some great shots. We visited the cafe, which serves excellent food and coffee. Also had a take away scone, jam and cream! Well worth a visit!

It was a photography expedition but it was bitingly cold even though it was sunny so one needs to dress appropriately. It costs £1.50 for cars to enter( at busy times at least) so ensure you have change. Having listed these precautions, it is ruggedly beautiful and the toll of the lighthouse bell is atmospheric. The beach is shingle and... More

Despite the £2.50 toll it's well worth the visit just to see the numerous bird's around the point you soon forget about the bell that rings every 60 seconds. The only drawback is the toilet facilities there is a lock on them and you have to purchase something from the cafe to use them after paying the £2.50 you would... More
