The Menai Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge between the island of Anglesey and the mainland of Wales. The bridge was designed by Thomas Telford and completed in 1826.
With Holyhead as the closest point to, and thus one of the principal ports for ferries to Dublin, Engineer, Thomas Telford was engaged to complete a survey of the route from London to Holyhead, and he proposed that a bridge should be built over the Menai Strait from a point near Bangor on the mainland to the village of Porthaethwy (which is now also known as Menai Bridge) on Anglesey.
Nearby is the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
