Llangefni - a market Town on Anglesey, in North Wales.

Llangefni Market and Square.

Llangefni is situated in the centre of Anglesey, and was once an extremely important part of Anglesey's agricultural history, as it was the central market for livestock. Cattle, pigs, chickens, and all manner of livestock were traded here. Llangefni is still a market town, with a decent sized market each Thursday and Saturday.

The atmospheric Bull Hotel, long a market tavern and rebuilt in its present form in 1872 is a nice building in the town.

Llangefni has the beautiful church of St Cyngar`s, and bordering the church is a path leading to a restored area known as the Dingle, and if you have never walked it, then do yourself a natural favour and do so.

Minutes from the town is the small but interesting art gallery - Oriel Mon - which houses the Tunnicliffe collection, and smaller exhibitions by local artists. It will soon house the collection of the late Sir Kyffin Williams. Apart from art, the gallery also features exhibitions of local history periodically. A small cafe inside lets you take `the weight off` for a little while.

The Town Clock is actually a memorial to one of Anglesey's sons lost in the Boer War.
