You have to look further than the hight street

Holyhead town is pretty awful, the shops are shabby, the whole place looks thoroughly run down.

But if you are kicking your heels waiting for the ferry or a train connection dont loose heart there is much more to see: keep on walking towards Newry Beach a lovely area that holds much more promise with its country park and marina. Or if you have a car or the time to get on the 22 bus (that takes you 3 miles out of town) visit the lovely South Stack lighthouse, with its 400 steps down the cliff face, there is also the visitor centre and cafe and lovely cliff and coastal walks.
