It was nice to see the Church and that it has open air services, and there are a lot of interesting grave stones in the grave yard next to it, such as that of BEE who was the first person (a woman in 1923) to drive a car up the Great Orme.

We walked up to the church along marine drive and then up to the church,what amazing views across the sea, on a clear day you can see the Isle of man.The church is small but so pretty, the stained glass windows are a wow factor. They have an outdoor service the last Sunday in the month. There are some very... More

A must see on the Great Orme. The religious seat in this area dating back to the thirteenth century with a cemetery which has held the great and good from Llandudno and beyond for generations. An ancient and holy place where respectful reflection is inevitable.

There has been worship on this site for hundreds of years and humans occupation here since the Bronze Age. The reason - well - primarily for safety and... More

We (nine grandchildren in our sixties) had gathered at St Tudno's to search for our grandparents graves in the churchyard. We had a rough idea of their locations but the Warden at the church was extremely helpful in assisting us in finding the plots and providing a site plan. With great grandchildren and spouses we were a fairly large gathering... More

We were walking up the Great Orme coming from Happy Valley park, and just above the ski slope we met this man coming down. We said you must have been up early this morning,and that's the hard bit over as he wasn't far from being back down. He explained that he was the rector at St Tudno's church and had... More

This church is hidden away on the Great Orme but should be sought out. Drive or walk up the Orme and then turn right towards the sea. There is a small car park where you can park up and take in the amazing view across the sea. There are plenty of ares to walk and picnic. The church itself is... More

This is a lovely church to visit and discover its history. The graveyard is also excellent for exploring as it tells so much about the life of the community.
