Penmon Priory Extortionate Car Parking

We visited beautiful Penmon Priory on Anglesey last summer. Be very careful where you park your car though.


The guide we had said parking for Penmon priory was the free but the obvious car park is apparently on a private estate and requires payment to a chap in a shed who told us that we would be prosecuted if we didn't pay up.

Even if we left straight away (we had been stopped for about a minute)we would still have to pay. He was very rude and upset the children.

It looked a great place but the reception was hostile and I must admid to feeling physically threatened. We paid and left.

Such a shame as we could see the old building called a Dovecote and the old St Seiriol's well allegedly dating back to the time of the early Christian saints in Wales.

This is lovely part of the world with a pleassant view to the mainland but I must say, Anglesey is let down by some strange way of doing things like these extortionate car park fees at Penmon.
