Llanrwst, the hidden jewel of North Wales, is situated in the perfect location to explore Snowdonia, the Conwy Valley and the North Wales Coast. Llanrwst was originally the only bridging point across the river Conwy and the bridge is known as Pont y Perl (the bridge of the pearl) because an exquisite pearl was found when the foundation stone was being laid.
The hump back bridge is featured in many photographs and was built in 1636 and probably designed by Inigo Jones. Near the bridge is Tu Hwnt i’r Bont once a 15th century courtyard and now a tearoom owned by the National Trust. Within easy walking distance of Gwydir Castle (open to the public) and the church of St Grwst built in 1170. Llanrwst is an ideal centre to explore Snowdonia, 4 miles from Bettws-y-Coed, 11 miles from Llandudno - steeped in history and beauty.
