Trefignath Burial Chamber
Step back in time
The Trefignath Burial Chamber is quite simply breathtaking. Making your way through the stunning country scenery on a day out with the kids or friends, you’ll instantly be transported to a time when the chamber was in full working order.
Before setting off, we suggest checking the opening times so you can enjoy a calm pace exploring the trio of tombs that hold some interesting tales.
What happened at Trefignath Burial Chamber?
The history you’ll experience dates back to the Neolithic period (New Stone Age) when Trefignath Burial Chamber was used as a burial site for the agricultural community, and you’ll find the first chamber on the west side.
Another sits on the east side, now surrounded by many small stones which once formed a mound.
Just one of the three burial chambers has kept its side and capstones, thought to be the later one erected. As you wander through the site, you’ll be amazed how every stone you see has thousands of years worth of gripping stories to tell.
Maybe your visit has inspired you to explore some more burial chambers? Lligwy Burial Chamber is a 35-minute drive across the island, which is also from Neolithic times. This tomb is roofed by a stone weighing a huge 25 tons.
Time for a spot of lunch
We think a hearty lunch will be on the cards after exploring the chamber.
There are some lovely restaurants in nearby Trearddur Bay, but we recommend The Black Seal, just a five-minute drive away.
Scrumptious light bites, traditional fish and chips, and vegan spiced sweet potato falafel are all available here. Finish off with their lemon and lime cheesecake as an extra treat!
