St Mary's and St Nicholas's Church, Beaumaris
The church was founded around 1330 to serve the new town.
It retains a 14th-century decorated nave, with four-bay arcades, although the chancel was rebuilt around 1500 in Perpendicular style. The west tower is of four stages, with a battlemented parapet. The upper section was remodelled in the early 19th century. The north vestry and south porch are probably nineteenth century. The exterior is mainly Perpendicular.
There are sixteenth century chancel stalls, also the coffin and lid of Joan, wife of Llywelyn ab Iorwerth and illegitimate daughter of King John. There are late fifteenth to early sixteenth century misericords, although with eight 1902 replacements. It is likely the old misericords came from the friary at Llan-faes. The church also contains the tomb of William Bulkeley, (died c. 1490), deputy constable of the castle, and of his wife. This is made of Midlands alabaster. A number of monuments to leading seventeenth century Establishment figures adorn the chancel east wall.
St Mary's and St Nicholas's is located in a large churchyard, with Church Street to the east and Steeple Lane to the west.
