Where is The 1900 Island filmed?

The 1900 Island was filmed on Llanddwyn Island.

Because of its sand dunes, it is part of the National Nature Reserve of Newborough Warren.

What is The 1900 Island about?

While some of us love nothing more than the mod cons of the 21st century, some people despise the fact that society has become so modernised.

BBC Two’s The 1900 Island sees four families take part in a unique life experience.

They’re spending some time living as if its the year 1900, escaping the modern world and becoming a small fishing community.

They face hunger, extreme weather conditions experience life without running water or electricity.

The families’ lack of experience is put to the test in this back-in-time challenge!
