The castle is in ruins, but many of the towers, walls survive. The entrance fee allows you to explore the ruins and it's a lot of fun to climb the towers, view what was once the church, rooms, and so forth...take your time and enjoy. As you climb the towers you gain a better perspective of the castle itself, while... More

After a nice bus ride through beautiful countryside, we arrived at Conway Castle. It a fine example of medical castles. It is easy to walk around and the views from the upper areas is quite nice. It will take 1-2 hours to fully enjoy the castle and then you can walk the streets of Conway for a bit of shopping.

We really enjoyed our visit to the castle; especially our Japanese visitor. Not that many around so impressive and still in such good shape.

You will love this castle, the towers take you really high and the view are stunning, this is a raw castle and not caked in information boards and signs everyway, and you feel like a knight guarding the castle. so it does take you back in time. The is a lot of walking and the spiral steps was very tight... More

One of the most impressive castles in Wales. Beautifully located, magically build, you can really imagine how this once must have been a castle to impress. Lots to see and imagine and a nice town at the doorstep.

I took a group of young men into the castle and they had questions about the site, the CADW staff answered all the questions asked in a way that the young men could understand - each had a special need - The visit was a success and the group used pictures they had taken to make an Album of Conwy...

Conwy Castle is stunning, excellent day out for the family. The children where given a puzzle which we all enjoyed filling in by finding the question & answers around the castle. The castle is stunning with wonderful views of Conwy it truly is a wonderful castle to visit. Highly recommended. xx

A lovely day out , there is lots of rooms and towers to explore which is great for kids. There are plaques with bits of information but not a great deal. You have to pay to get in £6.70 for adults and £5.10 kids but it is worth it. There are toilet facilities and a gift shop also nearby is... More
