Gwydir and the Wynns

The Wynns of Gwydir Castle were descendants of the Kings of Gwynedd. Their vast estate of some 36,000 acres of land dominated life in C16 North Wales. This leisurely walk will visit their house, Gwydir Castle, the beautifully decorated Gwydir Uchaf Chapel, the intriguing row of almshouses and the Wynn mausoleum, Gwydir Chapel in Llanrwst.

We’ll also stroll along the ‘Chinese Walk’ by way of Gwydir Quay to cross Pont Fawr bridge and follow the river back to Trefriw in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest at 4 p.m.!
