Notice: The House and Gardens are open 7 days a week throughout the summer holidays.
Enchanting mansion and gardens, with spectacular views of Snowdonia
Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association and contains his exquisite romantic mural and the largest exhibition of his works.
A military museum contains relics from the First Marquess of Anglesey's tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo.
There's a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, an italianate-style summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour.
A woodland walk gives access to a delightful spring and early summer rhododendron garden.
From the house and grounds, the views across the Menai Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia are simply stunning.
We're open 7 days a week throughout the summer - both the house and gardens - so come and see what's happening at Plas Newydd:
- 50 things activities take place every Wednesday of the school holidays
- Enjoy afternoon tea and gardening talk with Paul the head gardener
- Thrill to the Anglesey Hussars as they entertain with skirmishes, artillery display and canon fire
