Located between Betws y Coed and Llandudno, Llanrwst is in the Conwy Valley, nestling alongside the River Conwy and is a great location to use as a base to explore Snowdonia and North Wales. It’s a bustling town, with a narrow three-arch stone bridge, Pont Fawr, which is said to have been designed by Inigo Jones. It was built by Sir John Wynn of Gwydir Castle. The bridge connects the town with Gwydir, a manor house dating from 1492, the 15th-century courthouse known as Tu Hwnt i'r Bont and also with the road from nearby Trefriw. Originally built to carry horses and carts, the bridge has stood up well to modern traffic.
Llanrwst is a good centre for walking and mountain biking; local mountain bike trails include the well-known Marin Trail in the Gwydyr Forest, and walkers will find a wide variety of walks on offer from valley walks to mountain hikes.
There is a variety of local and international cuisine served in local cafes, bars and restaurants, and a variety of hotel, self-catering and B&B accommodation in the area, as well as a number of camping and caravan sites and even glamping! There are a number of places to take afternoon tea here, as well as light lunches and snacks, morning coffee and dinner. Topped off with a number of fish & chip shops and other take-away options, Llanrwst has everything for the discerning diner!
