In pictures: Holyhead highlights

Holyhead's Celtic Gateway bridge

More cruise ships are being encouraged to dock at Holyhead as the Celtic Wave Cruise Partnership promotes Irish Sea destinations.

Holyhead High Street

But most passengers who disembark tend to head for the big attractions like Portmeirion, Caernarfon Castle and Bodnant Garden.

Holyhead breakwater and country park

Has Holyhead got hidden visitor-appeal that could tempt cruise passengers to linger in town?

Holyhead Maritime Museum

Holyhead Maritime Museum may be small, but it's packed with stories of the town's seafaring tradition.

South Stack

South Stack lighthouse and nature reserve are popular attractions a few miles out of town.

St Mary's Catholic Church

Have you got any photos of Holyhead that could convince visitors to explore? We'd love to see them.
