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.

This is a busy,popular attraction during bank holidays and parking can become difficult the later you arrive. Its a fantastic place to visit although as I have difficulty with heights I found it hard at times with low walls and narrow walk ways. There's so much to explore and during my visit a group of period costumes performers put on... More

We enjoyed our visit to the castle,lots of areas to look around with good views at the very top..The towers would be difficult for the elderly to climb the narrow stairs,But if it's possible you can do it,it's well worth it. Would certainly visit the castle again for sure.

Welcomed by some lovely staff at the entrance. There is a fee for parking, Pricing for food/drink is expensive so would advise to take your own food/picnic. Lovely tour around the Castle so breath taking views if on sunny day. Bit misleading the bridge to get other side, couldn't find the entrance for it. but all together as a couple... More

Fantastic castle with spectacular views over Conwy. If you plan on visiting several places in Conwy be advised that there is an option to pay one overall price for both the castle and Plas Mawr House. This will save a few pounds as it can get expensive to pay separately.

From the outside, arriving from the bridge, the view of the castle is really striking and beautiful. Inside, there's not really much to see, but from the top of the towers you can admire the Panorama over the town and the river, which is really worth the (limited) expense. Definitely recommended

Very interesting visit and lots to look at. The castle has been well interpreted and there was a lot to look and find out more about.

Quite the old place, with spectacular views of the town of Conwy and beyond. Lots of walking, with steep and narrow stone stairs leading up to the towers, but lovely.

This place features what is left of the Conwy Castle- mostly massive stone walls that surrounded and protected it. This is not to say that these were not impressive. Many of the exterior walls were complete and some of the towers a pretty much intact. This allow you to climb up for some terrific views of the town and harbor... More

Loved this. It was an astoundingly well preserved Castle with turrets and staircases that seemed to go on forever. The Walls were hugely thick and brooding and the battlements really give you a sense of the over-riding power that the oppressors were attempting to instill and that the oppressed would have undergone. A really well preserved and magnificent historical monument.

Took some relatives from Australia and they were overwhelmed with it all, reasonably placed. So much of it in such good condition. Well recommended for all ages.
