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.

Many thanks for your comments. We so sorry that St Michael's was locked at the time of your visit - a key is available from the Railway Museum next door if the church is locked as is sometimes the case during the winter period.

Set in beautiful tranquil setting, St Michael's old church is a small, neat church with a bit of history. It's stood here since the 12th century, making it easily the oldest building in the village, and although nothing of real significance is here, it's just...More
