“Historical and great atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

This church is open to visitors at most times. It is very historical and has some interesting artefacts inside that are worth a visit. There is a touch screen computer there which shows you films of other areas of interest in the Vale of Glamorgan. A nice place to visit, as is the town of Llantwit Major.

“Historic gem woth a visit”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I spent a very pleasant hour exploring this quiet, well maintained church, of which you seen two main building periods. The inside better illustrates the separation in the church periods and you enter via the porch of the older west church, with its celtic stones and effigies, before moving through the glass doors to the "newer" east church, that has painted walls and stone screen. Outside the immediate grounds contains both the graveyard and ruined chapel/priest chantry, and makes for restful space to walk and enjoy. The church is ideal for anyone who has an interest in architecture or building interiors, or would like a quiet contemplative place to explore.
