“Nice church ”
Review of St. Cybi Church

St. Cybi Church
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We were visit in the center of holyhead because of the cruise stop by this port.
Truly, in general it Seems it's not worth to be in this place so it skippable.
In any case this place is nice it's an 13th century old use to be catholic and become Anglican in the years.

This Cornish Saint Cybi gives his name to Holy Island/ Holyhead. Cornish miners then moved up in the C19th for the copper mines
A really old church, the school rooms from C14th. old stone plaques above the door. Often open. The walls are the orginal fort

While the architecture of the church is relatively interesting, you cannot go inside and can see little from the outside of the church. If you are in Holyhead anyway, wouldn't hurt to walk by as it is right by the port, but definitely not a must see.

This is not a major tourist attraction, so you must do your homework before you arrive. Its easy to drive right past it and keep on going, as it is partly hidden from the street by the old Roman port fortifications. There is some limited street side parking but no dedicated parking facility. No bookstore. No cafe. No ticket booth. No amenities. But great architecture from various centuries. Lots of intersting tombstones in the surrounding graveyard. And a great choir, should you happen to be there during a service or when teh choir is practicing.

This historic church built in local stone stands in the centre of the town overlooking the harbour. i could tell that certain parts of the church were from the 13th century, and other parts from the 19th. There was not enough explanation available outside the church at times when it was closed.
I was disappointed.
