Flights from Cardiff
Although Liverpool John Lennon Airport offers the major air route into Beaumaris, it is possible to take a short haul flight from Cardiff International Airport to Anglesey Airport itself. The service flies twice daily, Monday to Friday, and the flight takes an hour. Given that Cardiff Airport is a major transport hub handling flights from all over Europe, this offers an alternative to those unable to access Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Anglesey Airport, which handles 8,500 passengers per year, consists of a check in desk and baggage claim area, with refreshments available from a vending machine. Several bus routes run from the airport have departure times synchronised to flight arrival times. The route by road from Anglesey Airport to Beaumaris is straightforward, consisting mainly of a 23 mile journey along the A55 North Wales Expressway.
Travelling After Your Flights
Take the M56 in Speke towards Wales and this, in turn, becomes the A55. For a while this runs directly along the coast, providing stunning views as well as a smooth journey, before crossing over to Anglesey and eventually reaching Beaumaris. In most cases, the journey, from flight to seaside, should take around two hours. There are several coach and bus shuttles outside the airport which run directly to Liverpool city centre, such as the Arriva 500, and from here you can access coach and train travel into Anglesey itself.
