Ham and Eggs Square

Link to French translationHam and Eggs Square, Castle Street

This cluster of former cottages is alongside the area known as Ham and Eggs Square. The name dates back to the days of horse-drawn coaches, when Llangollen was a popular place for passengers, drivers and horses to stop for a rest. Some were making tiring journeys from London to Holyhead for the sea crossing to Dublin, following Thomas Telford’s road (now the A5) through Llangollen.

The residents of the cottages used to cook quick and easy meals – usually ham and eggs – to serve to travellers.

The buildings still provide catering for visitors today. Part of the former square is used for the outdoor tables of the Cottage Tearooms.
