2019 Events on Anglesey

The beautiful Isle of Anglesey has many events throughout the year, several of them have now become national events where people come to participate from all around the United Kingdom.

The Anglesey Half Marathon, which starts over Thomas Telford’s majestic Suspension Bridge, the Sandman Triathlon which takes part around the beautiful Newborough forest and beach areas and not to mention the Tour de Mon (Round Anglesey Cycle Race). These 3 events attract 1000’s of people from across the UK.

Anglesey, our beautiful Island, also hosts many smaller, equally fantastic annual events which are great for both us as locals and for our visitors and lovers of Anglesey. We have 4 lifeboat stations which all hold their own lifeboat days throughout the summer, our massive agricultural show “The Anglesey show” and of course our hugely popular “Vintage Rally” which attracts literally hundreds of iconic vintage vehicle from around the United Kingdom, as well as from our very own Anglesey Transport Museum (Tacla Taid) in Newborough.
