Welcome to Menai Heritage!

We are a community project to celebrate our two world famous bridges; the Menai Suspension Bridge, built by Thomas Telford, and the Britannia Bridge, built by Robert Stephenson. Our fully accredited museum has exhibits of artefacts and drawings, films, quizzes and qualified guides. Take a walk over and under the Suspension Bridge, see the lions on the Britannia Bridge. Build your own bridges and test your knowledge.
