Today I learned that the longest place name (in the UK if not the world) is….

wait for it…

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllandysiliogogogoch

…or Llanfairpwllgwyngyll for short.

Apparently it means “St Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool of Llandysilio of the red cave” and it’s a village located in SE Anglesey, Wales.
