Accessibility

This brief guide to accessibility around the village was written by one of the event organisers who is a full-time wheelchair user, and is intended for general guidance. If you have any specific questions please contact us and we will try to assist.

General
In general the village is very accessible to wheelchair users with most of the shops and restaurants able to offer access to most of their floorspace, despite many of the buildings being of Victorian origin. Proprietors and staff are friendly and generally happy to help if you need assistance.

Car Parking
Chargeable and free parking is available in several locations around the village and in most car parks there are a number of disabled spaces. Be aware that the overflow car park at the end of station road and St Mary’s Church car park can be difficult to negotiate in a wheelchair due to their concrete surfaces which have large holes to allow drainage.

Toilets
Public disabled toilets are located at Station Road and Pont-y-Pair car parks.

Getting Around
Most areas of Betws-y-Coed can be negotiated quite easily in a wheelchair, with dropped kerbs at virtually all crossing points. In one or two places the pavement is uneven or cobbled, but these areas are small and easily negotiable with a little care. There is a lovely riverside accessible raised walkway starting from Pont-y-Pair Bridge car park at the north end of the village.
