Buy the combined ticket, with the castle, to save a bit of cash. Also take advantage of the free audio tour. A cracking place, full of history. Also, go up the tower for views of the castle and the town!

We bought tickets which combined entrance for Conwy Castle with Plas Mawr, and Plas Mawr was far more interesting in my opinion with the benefit of being unaffected by the weather. Pick up an iPod sized box at the reception and swipe it in front...More

We had heard from several people that this was well worth a visit. It was outstanding and I agree that when visiting Conwy one should make a point in seeing it. Quite outstanding in its age, historical renovation and beauty.

A lovely Historical House, that you can walk around and take a audio tour. Well worth a visit a visit, if your in the area. Highly Recommended.

I am afraid that Plas Mawr is currently closed to the public until the 1st of April.
