Mini guide to Llanrwst

     

Llanrwst is a picturesque, historical market town located on the east bank of the Conwy River northeast of Snowdonia and about 20 miles south of Llandudno at the mouth of the estuary.

There are many buildings of historical interest in Llanrwst, including the parish church of St Grwst, first built in 1170 before being rebuilt in 1470 and later restored in 1884. It has a particularly beautiful carved oak rood screen below a minstrels gallery and it also contains the large stone coffin of Llywelyn the Great. Next door is the early 17th century Gwydir Chapel, which has some lovely ceiling paintings and interesting early carved panelling and scrollwork, while nearby are a group of charming almshouses built in 1610.

Set in a beautiful 10-acre listed garden just west of the river is Gwydir Castle. Built in the 1500s from materials salvaged from the medieval Abbey of Maenan, this was the ancestral seat of the powerful Wynn family and is a fine example of a Tudor courtyard house. The house was added to in 1600 and again later in 1826.

The bridge spanning the river was built in 1636 and reputedly designed by the famed architect, Inigo Jones. Near to the bridge is the National Trust owned Ty Hwnt i'r Bont; now a tea room, it was built in the 15th century as a cottage and was later used as a courthouse in the 16th century.

There are some picturesque walks along the riverbank and for the more energetic there is a swimming pool, a skate park and excellent trekking, walking and cycling opportunities at nearby Snowdonia. There are also plenty of castles to be visited in the surrounding areas.
