Conwy Culture Centre opened in the autumn of 2019 and features an art space, a café and library.
But the land near Bodlondeb Park was previously the home of Ysgol Bodlondeb, a school many in the town remember fondly.
When the land was gifted to the council by Albert Wood, a man from a wealthy shipbuilding family, the school was built in 1897, originally opening as a girls’ school. In 1927 the school became an infant school.
Sadly Ysgol Bodlondeb closed in 1998 after Ysgol Porth y Felin was built in nearby Gyffin, and the Victorian school was used for years as a youth club and community rooms. The old school was demolished in 2018, to make room for the Conwy Culture Centre.
