A lovely walk along the Belgian promenade and over the causeway to this beautiful little island with a church (and graveyard) plus stunning views from the war memorial on the hill - well worth a visit if in the area.

St Tysilio's Church is a beautiful hidden spot right by Menai Bridge. When you cross over the bridge onto Angelesy there is a small pay and display car park. There is a path which takes you down to the straights through a wooded garden and across a causeway to the island. The church is very picturesque with the Menai Straits... More

We were taken by friends for a walk round church island and along the Belgian promenade. It's a wonderful setting (the tide was out; I suspect it's even better when it is in). and we had a relaxing afternoon

My wife was at St Gerard's convent as it was and used to visit this church. She took me there and I was enchanted and like to go back at every visit. Beautiful. Visit, but be quiet and savour it. Look at the War memorial too.

Unfortunately, the church was closed for repairs when we visited. Lovely walk through the trees and down to the island. Interesting to see the cemetery and fantastic scenery and all the different birds. Try to visit at High tide if possible as the views are better than at low tide!

I have been fortunate enough to go walking around Church Island on two occasions when the church has been open. It's so peaceful. Well worth the time to go inside.

This is not open all year round and depends on volunteers to keep open. See this little church if you can, it's an amazing little place set on an island in the straits. Incredible outlook and steeped in history. Worth the visit!!!

Really a place where you travel back in time, with the church atmosphere, the cemetery grounds with the druids signs and the round prayer (or perhaps sacrifices) areas. Truly amazing!
