About

Established as its own separate parish in 1844 with just a small grouping of homes and farms where the community of Old Colwyn stands today, Colwyn Bay has expanded to become the second-largest community and business centre in the north of Wales as well as the 16th largest in the whole of Wales.

The long promenade follows the vast sweep of the bay from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn and gives easy access to the wonderful beaches, pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea - all joined by a cycle track allowing exercise and fresh air to be taken together. Or you can stroll along the beautiful unspoilt promenade with its wide walkway and enjoy some refreshments at the kiosks situated along the way. There are also separate slipways situated along the promenade for fishing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Both Colwyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea have shopping areas and are close to the renowned Welsh Mountain Zoo, several golf courses and plenty of places to walk and climb.

The tiny chapel of St. Trillo built in the 6th century on the beach in Rhos-on-Sea is also worth viewing. The Chapel which measuring some 15 feet by 6 feet stands over a Holy Well and it is reputed that Madoc, Son of Owain Gwynedd, began his voyage of discovery from here to the Americas in 1170, more than three centuries before Columbus.
