Never seen so many varieties of coloured rock in one location. A "must see" if you are on Angelsey. Not an easy walk for the disabled.

If you visit Anglesey don’t miss Parys Mountain, it really is worth an hour or two of your time. As many have already said the scale and the colours are incredible, but if you look around you can see breathtaking views in every direction. We...More

What an amazing place. Breath taking views and incredible colours in the rocks. The scale is hard to comprehend. Do take your camera. Well worth a visit, one you'll remember.

Wanted to visit this place for years. Wow, I wasn't disappointed, it's a surreal out of this world environment. I've been visiting Anglesey for fifty years and trust me on this one, if the sun is shining, there's no better location on the island!!

My wife and I visited Parys Mountain disused mine workings in early September. This is a really amazing place, particularly if you fancy walking in a strangely alien landscape! The mountain was apparently mined for copper ore in the early Bronze Age, and it later...More

Had no idea this existed until friends took me there, having stumbled upon it themselves. Say walks 1-2 hours, but we reckon you could spend longer exploring and investigating this weirdly wonderful landscape. The Parys Mountain Windmill is a must to explore and don't miss...More

Most people associate North Wales with slate, but 150-200 years ago Parys Mountain was the biggest supplier of copper in the world. Visiting the place it's rough and ready, so take suitable boots with you. However, be prepared to be astounded by the results. Scenic...More

You can go at night but I think it would be pointless as the colours and geology would not be visible and these are the main reasons to visit Parys Mountain.
