Built in the late 13th century and reputed to be haunted by a past resident, this picturesque castle was built for King Edward I and is a perfect example of the "concentric castle" design.

A lovely castle with lots of history. A little on the pricey side especially for a large family. Kids under 5yrs are free. Beware this is a very open castle with little secure barriers. If you are coming with smaller children who have a tendency to run about. Maybe invest in some reins. Not good for anyone with walking difficulties... More

I had never been to conwy but loved every bit of it! A lovely seaside town. The castle provided amazing views of the bay and harbour with lots of interesting spaces to explore.

Great castle with lovely views, have been up it many times over the years and it never loses its charm. If you're not afraid of heights or feeling like you'll have a tragic accident, it's an interesting climb.

A really super castle. It is really an exploration, up to the many tower tops and along the battlements. Amazing views of the medieval walled town, the hills beyond and the wide estuary. Definitely not to be missed! A castle which exceeds all expectations- it is what a castle is always thought to look like!

Looking from the outside, i saw what remained of a nice castle at the seaside that gives this picturesque area this extra kick.

We arrived at Conwy Castle by bus. We walked along the town walls to get to the visitor entrance. It is a great place to explore - you can climb the towers and look out over Conwy marina. You need good weather to visit as it is all open. We spent about an hour or so looking round. Good attraction... More

If you really want to see how the past was this is a great example. So old and so well preserved. One of the best ruins you will get to experience. The towers also offer great views of the walled city!

Stayed in Llandudno and decided to visit Conwy - the castle here is good vale for money and really great if you have kids as they have a 'quest' to keep them (and all ages) busy!! Well worth a visit, and if you have the stomach, go right to the top of the turrets - I dont like heights but... More
