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.

Th castle was amazing but the only problem was that there wasn't enough or appropriate information for adults as most signs were written for children. The views were spectacular from the top of the towers.

I visited Conwy because was the nearest place in North Wales from Chester. The Conwy Castle is amasing and have all you need to have a medieval experience. The castle entrance cost 6 pounds (I realy don't rememer the exact amount) and could be too expensive for some people but the experience worth every pound. The castle offers an excelente... More

Loved the historic value of this space, all though I would say wear proper footwear as there is lots of stairs up into the towers. We spent a good 2.5 hours just wondering around the place. Lovely place for children to run and discover the history trail. Some great sculpture within the walls of the castle

Conwy Castle is a must see for any castle enthusiast. It is in remarkably good condition and allows the visitor to get a feel for what life may have been like during its heyday. There is an added bonus of the spectacular views you can get from the battlements of the town of Conwy and the river, complete with Telford's... More

The castle itself is in a fabulous location and beautifully kept, definitely worth a look. Sadly I can not give 5 stars as the staff upon entering and leaving the castle did not acknowledge the presence of visitors. Gift shop was deathly silent with unhappy looking staff and put us off having a look about to be honest.

Conwy castle and its wall are an awe inspiring site to behold. The interior and exterior are both very well preserved and the remains leave a lot to the imagination.

Love this place. So much too look at. The kids loved it too. First visit for them was 2015 and to now still ask to come back. Will definitely be coming back this summer. Highly recommended

What a treat! Conwy Castle is outstanding. Though in disrepair at one time Conwy has salvaged what was left and is sharing it with the public (for a reasonable fee). Amazing views.

Conwy Castle is exactly what I think of when I think of a castle. There are others that are better maintained and completely restored, but this is so beautiful and rich in history. The views overlooking the bay and the town are breath taking as well. Don't forget to walk the city wall while you are there too. Wonderful way... More
