Getting to Newborough Forest
Newborough Forest is situated in the village of Newborough on the south west coast of Anglesey. It has good transport links and is easy to find. Use the postcode LL61 6SG to bring you to the right road. It's about a mile from the village to the access road on the edge of the forest.
Direct services take you to the popular North Wales destinations from most parts of Britain. Make inland connections via the Conwy Valley Line which runs through the Snowdonia National Park to Betws-y-Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog. Services from the Midlands through Shrewsbury and Machynlleth link up with the Cambrian Line.
The closest major station to Plas y Brenin is Bodorgan on the main line to Holyhead. This is a request stop so you must indicate to a member of train staff that you wish to get off at this stop or it will pass straight through. It is about 4 miles from Newborough Village and an easy cycle.
