Llangefni is Anglesey’s county town and principal administrative centre.  It is also a major cultural centre.

Leading the way in Llangefni is Oriel Ynys Môn, a purpose built museum and arts gallery, Oriel Ynys Môn has so much to offer. The Oriel has been applauded for the quality of the gallery's shop - Jac Do - which offers a wide range of craft work and for the newly refurbished Blas Mwy café which is popular with tourists and local people alike.

Visitors who wish to learn about the cultural history of Anglesey can enjoy the centre’s History Gallery which gives an introduction to the island’s past through sound, imagery, reconstructions and real artefacts. Part of the History Gallery is dedicated to one of the foremost wildlife and countryside artists of the Twentieth Century, Charles F Tunnicliffe. This unique collection of paintings records Anglesey’s abundant wildlife.

Oriel Kyffin Williams has a dynamic and changing programme of exhibitions displaying the artists’ work. This ranges from Oriel Ynys Môn’s own collection to paintings and drawings borrowed from institutions and individuals. During the course of the year, the Oriel organises a variety of events – workshops for children and families as well as specialised talks.

There are pubs, and cafês, plus a wide variety of shopping facilities.  Llangefni also hosts a lively open-air market on both Thursdays and Saturday, along with both a Leisure centre and nine hole golf course/driving range.
