Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw Arts Centre

Museums and Art Galleries North Wales

In the first decade of the new millennium Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw celebrated its centenary and a half making it not only one of Wales’ most picturesque art venues but also its oldest.

Nestling in the village of Llanbedrog on the Llyˆn Peninsula, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Gothic styled Mansion was built in 1857 as a Dower house for Lady Elizabeth Jones Parry of the Madryn Estate.

In 1896 the venue was opened up to the public following its acquisition by Cardiff entrepreneur, Solomon Andrews. Over the next century the gallery experienced varying fortunes and was saved from impending dereliction by the sheer determination of a local couple, Dafydd and Gwyneth ap Tomos, who lovingly restored the mansion during the last quarter of the 20th century.

In 1996 the Friends of the Gallery purchased the building, with lottery funding, and it is now owned and run by an independent charitable trust.

In 2008 the adjacent 12 acre woodland was bought back into the estate. Since then a network of footpaths have been developed, including a coastal path, along with a new car park, amphitheatre and interpretation centre.

In house the gallery stages monthly exhibitions by premier artists from Wales and beyond.

You can also enjoy adult and kids art workshops, concerts, lectures, craft fairs and many other activities throughout the year.

With free entry to the gallery and an award winning tea room and craft shop to enjoy there is something for everyone at this most relaxing of locations. A warm Welsh welcome awaits you at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw.
