MOSTYN is a friendly place to discover inspiring art, enjoy our shop and cafe, and learn or do something new.

Bringing an impressive selection of international contemporary art to Llandudno, we have a varied programme of exhibitions and events, in fantastic spaces that merge the old and the new.

We offer a wide range of activities, and families are particularly welcome. With activity sheets, talks, tours, workshops and drop-in sessions, there's something for everyone.

In our stunning shop you'll find the best in contemporary craft from Wales and beyond. We stock jewellery, ceramics, textiles and glassware alongside books and gifts for all ages.

Come along to our fully accessible and spacious cafe which offers delicious freshly cooked food with an international flavour. It's the ideal place to call in for brunch, lunch or afternoon tea, with lovely views to the sea and the work of local artists on the walls.

Knowledgeable gallery staff are always happy to talk to you about the exhibitions. If you have any questions, or would like an informal tour, just ask.

Lovely modern gallery showcasing a range of styles and work. The building is stunning and surprisingly modern inside. It's also completely free but there are donation boxes within. The cafe is really nice, good simple food, quite surprising for a gallery cafe as I'm used to just tea and cake but here you can even get a steak sandwich! I'll... More

I'm not a great fan of Contemporary Art, but this gallery does an important job of showcasing this modern work. Gallery space is excellent. Rather nice restaurant on the top floor with great views of Llandudno. The Shop on the ground floor is terrific. Huge selection of work. Wonderful silver jewellery and many other really individual items. Books and cards... More

I've noticed for at least the four months I've been visiting that a tap is broken and flows non stop in the ladies toilet. Someone needs to pull their finger out and fix it, it's a disgraceful waste! Great use of charity money- paying the water bill.

Hi, Thank you for visiting MOSTYN and for your comment/review. Also thank you for alerting us to a potential problem. We've had the tap checked recently and found that it is not broken, the tap is designed to turn itself off after a specified time and it does in fact work as intended. Unfortunately its not possible to alter the... More

The work by the female artists - especially Jan Gardener - was truly fantastic. Vibrant. Colourful. Attractive. Interesting. The whole gallery has a very relaxed, light and welcoming atmosphere. It is a very inspiring environment.

Lots of original artwork from local artists. My wife bought some lovely earrings from an artist working on Angelsey.

This gallery hosts some amazing and eclectic exhibitions...art is so subjective! I think it's a beautiful space for showing art of all types. The cafe upstairs is quirky and it's FREE!!! Obviously if you enjoy the exhibition a donation is encouraged. Toilets are clean an accessible

A varied collection ranging from children's toys to abstract art by way of jewellery and carved wooden birds. Virtual reality, a robot and a skateboard facility were unexpected. A worthwhile visit for its range and a source of unusual presents and/or souvenirs. Entrance is free.

Exhibits looked alright, just that we expected a bit more. Liked the bike. Didn't go to the upstairs restaurant. Meh!
