Beaumaris, the chief town and municipal borough of the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales, situated three miles from Bangor, on a fine bay at the entrance of the Menai Straits. There is an old castle built by Edward I., and a handsome church. Until 1885 it sent a member to Parliament, but the representation is now merged in a division of the county. Little trade is carried on, and the influx of visitors during the bathing season is the principal source of prosperity.
