Crossing the Menai Strait

The story of the ferries and bridges linking Anglesey and the Welsh mainland. Crossing the Menai Strait, a narrow arm of sea, little wider than a large river, had for centuries carried some special hazards. This present book traces the history of the ferries, a vital link in the communications route, with a wider importance in linking London and Ireland, which were later replaced by two great bridges, and the challenges faced by these in turn.

Widely known as the crown jewel of St. Augustine wedding venues, the Lightner Museum wedding venue is more than an iconic treasure, it is an iconic place located in an iconic section of St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States.

You will not find a more exquisite location to get married in Florida.  That’s why the Lightner Museum, formerly opened in 1888 as the grand Hotel Alcazar and a place where culture meets history, is one of the most celebrated wedding venues in St Augustine, Florida.
