Built when the railways arrived to replace the smaller, and much older, St Michael's, St Mary's is a neat parish church. It's nothing out of the ordinary except for the wonderful rose window, and is worth a visit if you're in the village

A very peaceful place to visit away from the busy A5 which runs through Betws y Coed. There is a very modern hall next door, but the Church has some interesting features.

A welcoming church . Obvious evidence of activities and fundraising for other causes by displays in church . It gives the impression of a vibrant church in this beautiful setting.

We popped into this church after a lunch stop in the village. It has some nice stained glass windows & i was impressed with the attractive pulpit. The church had a pleasant welcoming atmosphere.
