Holyhead is at the farthest side from the bridges. It's principal claim to fame is that it is an exit port for ferries to Ireland.

Near to the town rises what is rather grandiloquently called Holyhead Mountain, almost the only significant rise on the whole island. The clifs around the mountain are very scenic and at South Stack there is a centre of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). In the breeding season, there is an excellent chance of seeing guillemots, razorbills and puffins together with choughs which were virtually extinct in England until recently, when they have started re-colonising Cornwall.
