Small 14th century church standing on the banks of the River Conwy. Now redundant, it is in the care of the St Michael's Betws-y-Coed Trust.

a trip back in time, very tranquil building and easy to imagine it in times gone by, set in an equally tranquil graveyard

Tucked away on the banks of River Conwy, close to the suspension bridge for pedestrians. Built in the 14th century, the oldest building in town. The floral displays of the Flower Festival were still present. Only a couple of services a year are held in...More

If you love finding a hidden gem to explore here is a good one. A 14th century church and cemetery tucked away behind the The Conwy Valley Railway Museum.

A small stone church steeped in history, with an effigy of a descendant of the last native prince of Wales. Well-maintained and entered through either of 2 arched stone gates. There is also a cemetery in the grounds outside the church.

A dear little church which inspired many victorian artists. Some of whom are buried there. A very tranquil and special space with a beautiful yew tree in the grounds. Good to escape there from the hustle and bustle of the main drag in BETSWY COED

Well worth a visit. Step inside & read the provided guide information. The church is quaint & is surrounded by a churchyard. I love to walk through the graves taking in the history. A real magical spot.

A beautiful little church very peaceful, worth reading about its history a little away from the other attractions and behind the church a pedestrian suspension bridge over the river.
