All about... PLAS NEWYDD.

PLAS Newydd, theNational Trust run property,overlooking the Menai Strait near Llanfairpwll,is still the home of Lord Anglesey.

n The 18th century house, built by James Wyatt, is a blend of classical with mock Gothic, and all around are stunning views of Snowdonia and the Britannia Bridge,one of two links to the mainland.

The house is associated with artist Rex Whistler,and features one of his largest wallpaintings. There is also an exhibition about his work.

The interior of the house was re- styled in the 1930s.

n Open to the public from April to November other attractions include a military museum and woodland and garden walks.
