Aberffraw, Anglesey, North Wales

Aberffraw is a small rural village on the south west coast of Anglesey. Reputed for its broad golden sandy beach and mountain views. Aberffraw was also once the ancient royal court of the Kings of Gwynedd and an important administrative centre in medieval times for the Kings and Princes of Gwynedd. Sadly there are no remains of the Llys - or Royal Court - above ground. With a Bronze Age Burial chamber, Trwyn Du, and 7th Century sea bound church St Cwyfan's close by, this village positively oozes history.

It is also home to the Aberffraw biscuit - a scallop-shaped shortbread which is reputed to be the oldest biscuit recipe in Britain. There’s a great tea room, Llys Llewelyn, in Aberffraw next to the heritage centre, where you can read all about Aberffraw’s significant past.
