Overview
More
An innovative artisan food company that lets visitors look behind the scenes of a family business and finishes with a tutored sea salt tasting. Our one-of-a-kind tour is recommended for anyone interested in salt’s place in our history, culture, food and in what makes Halen Môn Sea Salt a world-famous seasoning. The contemporary building sits well in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and houses a contemporary gift shop too full of wares from near and far (you don't need to book a tour to visit the shop.) Free use of purpose built car park, cycle racks, quality toilets and fantastic views in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This was an unplanned trip, we stumbled across it. It was however good fun and interesting and we got to taste their salt and some very delicious chocolate and caramel sauces! I would recommend it if you are in the area!

Spent about an hour going around. Rob was very informative and friendly. Catered for the older folks very well. Great to see behind the scenes of probably the best salt going.
