"long name - little place" Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch by margaretvn

a short stop

This is one way to make new friends on holiday - it always works for us!!! We park our little Smart car by a sightseeing area and people come up to take its photo and get chatting. It is like taking your dog for a walk everyone stops you tp chat. We actually only really stopped here for a coffee and a photo of th name and there is not much else to do in this place... but a postcard withthe name is a fun thing to send to people.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:you just have to see that name
  • Cons:there is just the name and the station
  • In a nutshell:whats in a name?

    Good that they give some help about how to say the name of this town. But actually I think I would go there because of the castle, not the name.

    Margaret, lovely little page here. At least I once came through Llanfair PG by train on my way from Llandudno to Anglesey.

    I've been her too!!! Was a long time ago and I didn't dare trying to spell it on my pages, ha ha :-) You really should visit the Isle of Man one day - you would love it.

    I tried several times, almost did it but triple L is really hard to pronounce. I'll send you a pic of one very special Smart now, clicked it on my last journey, looks like a toy!
