Llanrwst (pronounced approximately hlanROOST) is a small town and Community on the A470 road and the River Conwy in the county borough of Conwy, traditional county of Denbighshire, north Wales. It takes its name from the 12th century church of Saint Grwst. The town grew around wool and harp manufacturing, but lying as it does in Snowdonia, its main industry today is tourism. It is served by two railway stations on the Conwy Valley Line.


Attractions in the town include the bridge (Pont Fawr), said to have been designed by Inigo Jones, the fifteenth century courthouse Ty Hwnt i'r Bont, two seventeenth century chapels and Gwydir Castle, a manor house dating from 1492.


The Gwydyr Forest lies south west of the town.


Llanrwst hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1951 and 1989.
