Anglesey is a small island off the north-west coast of Wales. From the minute you cross one of the bridges you’ll see stunning landscapes, rugged coastlines, picturesque villages and lighthouses that are just waiting to be photographed.

The Isle of Anglesey is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and has one of the most distinctive, attractive and varied landscapes in the British Isles. The coastal zone of Anglesey was designated as an AONB in 1966 and was confirmed in 1967. It was designated in order to protect the aesthetic appeal and variety of the island’s coastal landscape and habitats from inappropriate development and covers most of Anglesey’s 201 kilometre (125 mile) coastline.

The isle provides an array of photography opportunities all year round and the varying tides make each unique coastal location a new experience every time you visit. Inland there is also so much to be discovered, from an array of historic landmarks including a castle, historic copper mine, an active mill, and burial mounds to name a few. Anglesey is extremely proud of its rich history and invites you to discover and explore its lively past through a number of inspiring attractions.

The Isle of Anglesey will soon be receiving the International Dark Sky Community status from the International Dark-Sky Association with plenty of dark locations making it a perfect for shooting under the stars.

You truly are spoilt for choice when photographing in the isle come day or night. There are few if any restrictions regarding photography in Anglesey.
