Amlwch Copper Kingdom: Parys Mountain

Many of our attractions are reopening and / or have alternative arrangements for visitor enjoyment and safety. Please contact the attraction below for further details.

Welcome to the 'Copper Kingdom', where the miners were already busy in the Bronze Age, perhaps 4,000 years ago. After the 1760s, this small corner of Wales became the cauldron of the Industrial Revolution. Parys Mountain briefly produced more copper than any other mine in the world.

The copper from this mine coated the warships of the Royal Navy at Trafalgar in 1805.

The "Copper Kingdom" refers to the area of Amlwch on Anglesey, North Wales which once had the largest copper mine in the world.

Copper was mined at Parys Mountain and then taken down to Amlwch Port where it was further processed and then shipped around the world. The Copper Kingdom Centre based in Amlwch Port tells the story.

For further details please see our heritage site.
