Only a short review for a change, but the fact that we returned yet again to Plas Newydd shows that in our mind it is worth visiting more than once. The house is so well preserved and the contents so well displayed and laid out,...More

Fabulous gardens, lovely walks and lots of interesting views from the grounds - dogs are not allowed in the house, but it was worth going to walk around the gardens - lovely day and lots of interesting plants and trees

Loved the history of the house, how it was centred around one of the ancestor’s childhood experiences of living there. The gardens are just superb with fabulous views.

Great views across the Menai Straits. Well tended gardens and an impressive arboretum. Today's extra was a sun filled cafe courtyard. Delightful, well worth a visit.

We took the option to look around the grounds only, i.e. didn't go into the house itself, and still spent over 4 hours there. Stunning location right on the Menai Straight, and the beautiful weather helped. Highly recommended.

Brilliant time enjoying the views of the Menai Strait and exploring the interesting mansion. Very informative guides bring the family house alive, especially Rex Whistler's mural with its symbolism and humour. Particularly enjoyed the link with the theatre towards the end of the tour. Lots...More
