What a lovely afternoon, started with free parking (that never happens)!!!
Wonderful views in every direction, several shortish walks ideal for kids.
Tower has a viewing window and helpful rspb staff to point out sights.
Cafe was also great 😀

Hi there, dogs are allowed across the reserve, they are allowed inside Ellin's Tower and the shop but not into the cafe (there are lots of tables outside). If you are heading out onto Holyhead mountain please be aware that there are sheep grazing there on weekdays from the end of July to November and keep your dog on a lead.
