I grew up in Llantwit Major and I've always loved St Illtyds Church. A beautiful historic church with such a peaceful atmosphere. My daughter got married there and we couldn't have asked for a location more gorgeous. Wonderful and well worth a visit.

A beautiful church with a wealth of ancient headstones and history. Built in a depression out of the sight of marauding Scandinavian pirates.

Well worth the visit. The oldest part of the church dates to the Normans with some even older carved Celtic stone columns, dating back to around 500AD. The baptismal font is from Norman times. The area displaying the Celtic stone columns is beautiful and peaceful....More

The Celtic stones are about 1500 years old. They are magnificent. They are displayed in the newly renovated Galilee chapel for which the architect won an award.
