“Wonderfully quaint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The visit to Conwy begins when you are crossing the bridge to approach the city from the west, and the castle, set by the water next to the bridge, suddenly appears. The town the castle guards is small, surrounded still by the thick stone walls that were built around it in the late 13th century as fortification. The small city of 14,000 people has all the stone buildings and narrow, steep streets that you want in a quaint Welsh town. Go on a sunny day and wear good walking shoes. If you are staying overnight, there are plenty of B&Bs to choose from. The one where we stayed, The Town House guest house, within sight of the castle, was very nice - clean and hospitable, with a good breakfast.

“Small but well preserved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Started the walk near the castle - it was a bit difficult to find how to get up on the walls (not that well signposted), and you need to get down to walk around the railway station, but you can still walk most of the way round the town. The town is very small and the wall take less than 30 mins to walk, but they do give a good perspective of where everything is, so later when you go into town you know where you are. We walked along the walls from the castle round the town until we got to the harbour, you then need to dismount from the wall.

“Free and good view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Very steep in places, but a good walk with good views. It does not go all the way around the town which is a bit dissappointing, but well worth it for free
