The Longest One Word Place Name in Europe

Anglesey is an island that is in North Wales. It is where the place with the longest name in Europe is. There are 58 letters in the name.


It is usually shortened to Lanfair P.G or Llanfairpwll as these are easier and quicker to say!!!

It means "Saint Mary's Church in a hollow of White Hazel near the swirling whirlpool of the church of Saint Tysilio with a red cave."

  1. I'm not sure if the Welsh name or the English meaning is more difficult to say! A very interesting post Glyn.
