Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch


Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a village of the Anglesey Island, in Wales. It is the longest name of United Kingdom and the third longest around the world.

In Welsh, the village’s name means: "the Santa Maria’s church in the hollow of the white hazel next to a fast whirlwind and the San Tisilo’s church next to the red cave".

Although it is called as Llanfair PG (Lanfairpwll for Welsh people)
The name was decided around 1860 by council of the village, mainly to have the largest name in a Rail Station in Great Britain.
In the sign there is phonetics version that makes it easier to read in Welsh: Llan-vire-pooll-guin-gill-go-ger-u-queern-drob-ooll-llandus-ilio-gogo-goch.
In English its pronunciation could be: Clan vira pulth gwinn gith gor gerrick win drob uth clan tay see lee oh go go gokh.
This is a tourist destiny very visited. The tourists use to take photos of themselves next to the sign where is the village’s name
