Sorry not to give 5 stars. We had a lovely time, as fairly fit adults mainly because of the views, also loved the modern art pieces set against the ancient buildings and the fireplace piece. To get 5 stars, an audio guide or better info boards would be needed in my opinion. So glad we didn't have our small grandsons... More

Depending on what you expect from a castle visit, this could be a bit of a disappointment. The place is ruins with no tour guides, interactive media, wax figures, explanations, etc. So if you love the chance to imagine your own history there,it might be perfect. If you'd like a little more information and interaction, it's not there. Definitely not... More

Reasonably priced. Quite exciting with all the different rooms and turrets and what to expect in each! Fabulous views over the town and estuary.

I know this is a medieval building that was built to keep people out and that there is a limit to what you can do to alter the fabric of a building like this but in our large party of15 we had one person who is a wheelchair user and the ramp and steps into the castle were too much... More

This castle is beautiful, and the views from the top are stunning. Although the castle has been overtaken by pigeons it is lovely to explore. You don't get any guide about what the rooms were or where your standing as such, but there are little plaques around the building telling what the room used to be but it doesn't offer... More

When I first stumbled across this castle when planning my trip, I instantly fell in love with it and the massive size of it. It is such a brilliant castle, not overly crowded. The views of the city around are breathtaking. There is ample parking and a nice little gift shop.

The castle is impressive, with well-preserved towers. These offer great views of the town, bridges, and the sea, but are a little hairy if you have small children. Our eldest enjoyed the clues he had to find as we went around, and it was good value for money.

Great castle to run around, would be good to have some activities for younger children, and some information for adults.

Decided to drive to Conway for the day, took my dad (pensioner and young Child) I took my daughter to see the littlest house in Britain, it cost £1 for adults and 50p for pensioners and children. You are.in just a few seconds but my little girl was inthralled with the quaint house. We were going to go for dinner... More

Conwy Castle with the marine, harbour & bridge views. Are a big yes from us! If you have time to spend just wandering around the town of Conwy, sitting at the harbour with your fish & chips or just walking the bridge, the castle in Conwy is a good way to spend a couple of hours with it's picturesque views...
