We went to the South Stack as part of a brief stop over in Holyhead before catching a rail connection the next morning. Knowing there probably wasn't a great deal to do in the area during the time we had, we thought that a visit to South Stack would be enjoyable. Words cannot describe the majesty and wonder of this place. Whether you physically go to the lighthouse or not (we could not; after hours), it is worth it just admiring this great wonder as it sits on a tiny island just off of Anglesey. Absolutely breathtaking! If it isn't on a "bucket list" for visitors to the UK, and especially Wales, it definitely should be. Nothing quite compares to this, as it sits in a secluded natural setting, accessed only by 400 winding stone steps all the way down a rocky cliff. For those ill at ease with heights or those who have physical limitations, you can still enjoy the view from the top end of the trail leading there. It's an amazing wonder. Go, go, go! One cavaet: After hours, there is no toilet facility available, so be prepared.
