The village of Aberffraw was built on the site of the court of Prince Llywelyn (Llewellyn) the Great, and as such is historically one of the most important places in Wales.

The Llys Llewellyn Heritage Centre in the village is well worth a visit, with much about the Princes of Gwynedd and Wales.

Purely out of interest, in 1889 a house in the village that is now demolished, was the home of the father (a local postmaster and chemist) of Doctor William Evans Thomas, who it is suggested may have been Jack the Ripper - he returned to Aberffraw from his home in London, and was later found dead by his father, having consumed half a bottle of prussic acid. The verdict recorded was suicide whilst temporarily insane.
