From the A55 exit at junction 9 and follow the signs towards Bangor, then Menai Bridge. This will take you over the Menai Suspension Bridge. Go straight through the roundabout at the end of the bridge to Mona Road; the Telford Centre will be just past the church, on the right. Some parking is available in front of the centre. More is available in a pay and display car park 100m down the road at the Coed Cyrnol car park.
To reach Prince’s Pier turn right at the roundabout at the end of the bridge, onto Telford Road, and go to the town centre, Uxbridge Square, where Water Street is on the right. There is limited parking on Water Street, but the town pay and display car park is just off Uxbridge Square, behind the Bulkeley Arms. To walk to Prince’s Pier from there go down Water Street, past the Liverpool Arms, a row of shops, a boat yard and a wall on the left, and a terrace of flats on the right. Then turn left into the drive next to the boat slipway.
