Anglesey Airport – more information from North.Wales
Anglesey Airport provides a convenient way to reach the island from mainland Wales. For those wanting to travel to the island without driving, flying can often be the next best option.
Where is it?
The airport is located at RAF Valley, Holyhead, over to the west of the island. The postcode for those using satnav to get there by car is LL65 3NX.
How can you get there?
It depends on where you are coming from. If you are driving to the airport from the west side of the island, you can use the North Wales Expressway to reach it. The same road can be used from the east, turning off onto Minffordd Road to reach the airport entrance. If travelling from the north of the island, aim for the B5109 before taking the London Road down to the roundabouts that lead onto Minffordd Road.
Of course, if you fly into the airport to get to Anglesey, you’ll need those directions when returning for your flight home.

Things you should know before flying

Alternatively, you can pre-arrange a cab on the island to take you wherever you wish to go. They will meet you on arrival.
Public transport is another option, as a bus service connects Valley train station with the airport. Trains from there take you to various popular places on the island.
