Walking the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way

See website North Wales Pilgrim’s Way 


Update 8th August 2020
We’re back walking the Pilgrim’s Way now, in one-day walks every week.   We’ve reached Bangor, and we’re hoping to complete the walk by the end of September
The 140-mile North Wales Pilgrim’s Way from Basingwerk Abbey to Ynys Enlli / Bardsey Island passes through Rowen.  You can stamp your Pilgrim’s Passport, and sign the visitors’ book at Seion Chapel, in the middle of Rowen.  The chapel is open to visitors every day of the week (under normal circumstances, closed at present).

Day 4, Chatting to a poet near Gwytherin

We hope you enjoy your visit to Rowen.
See our Places to Stay in Rowen page.
Make sure you visit our Telephone Kiosk Information Point, next to the Ty Gwyn Hotel.

Clwydian Walking Holidays can provide support for walkers and pilgrims.  They offer a full range of facilities from luggage transfer to booking accommodation and minibus support.

Luggage transfer from Rowen to Abergwyngregyn or Llanfairfechan can also be arranged with Anglesey Walking Holidays.

Day 5. Go that way my friend, near Llangernyw.

The walk from Rowen to Abergwyngregyn includes the beautiful Llangelynin Old Chuch, and the stunning stone circles above Penmaenmawr.  A day to remember!

Try Aber Falls Hotel in Abergwyngregyn for overnight accommodation, and please mention this website.
We highly recommend the the Hen Felin Cafe in Abergwyngregyn.

See our website pages Wales Coast Path, Llyn Peninsula for pictures of more of the Pilgrims’ Churches.
