Holyhead origins (Caergybi) date from 450AD, when Celtic King Caswallon defeated Irish invaders on Holy Island. Undoubtedly, the port of Holyhead is the busiest UK Irish ferry port and is home to the largest seagoing ferry in the World. As a matter of fact, there are very good views over the port from the grounds of St Cybi’s church, from where there is also a good view of skinners monument on Alltran rock. Moreover, this obelisk was erected by the people of Holyhead in memory of Captain John Mcgregor Skiner, a benefactor to the town’s poor who was washed overboard from his ship in 1832. The cliffs themselves near the lighthouse are also a popular attraction, claiming stunning walks in natural settings.
