LlanfairPG Station

Llanfairpwyllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch is the longest place name in Britain and second longest in the world!

Construction began on the station on March 1 (St David's Day) 1845 and opened three years later when two locomotives were shipped to Holyhead, it then remained open until 1966 when Britannia Bridge set fire. In 1995 the station got fully restored to how it would have looked like in Victorian times. When you're there don't forget to take your passport or postcard to get it stamped
