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.

Conwy is a hidden gem of North Wales. While Port Merion might have the advantage in sheer eccentricity, Conwy is a hugely charming enclave on the north coast of Wales. The town is full of places to eat, drink and just browse. A very laid-back atmosphere makes the town the perfect place to just stroll about at your leisure. Conwy... More

A very well preserved castle and surrounding walls of the village of Conwy. Took my american girlfriend who has never seen something like this and just the view from the road was enough to take her breath away. A very reasonable entry price and some interactive puzzles and maps inside the castle. Also a nice touch of the poppy displays... More

Run By CADW, so English Heritage accepted. Part royal residence, part defensive castle with good information boards to explain functions of different areas. Probably need an hour + and reasonably fit if you want to go up all the towers!! Good views over Conwy.

Great castle and walls! We loved the pub down by the ocean as well. Walking on top of the walls gave a great view of the surrounding town. We visited this a few years ago but I didn't have the option of picking the correct date

A pleasant town with many individual shops and plenty of Cafes and Pubs.. The Castle is a big attraction and looks fantastic next to the bridge. A short walk takes you to the Harbour, where you can relax and enjoy the views, or take a Boat Trip around the Bay .A lot of families buy Crab fishing kits, to amuse... More

This is a great castle well worth the time exploring. The walls are run down a bit and some areas are not accessible. Even so, you can see most of the castle and the ruins of the inner walls. It's a great experience here.
