Great views and work up an appetite for lunch. Do the walk in both directions to appreciate the views.

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The walls of Conwy Castle encircle the modern town and access is free. We happened upon the steps to the wall at one end, and took the wall walk to its end. The views are amazing. The height of the conserved walls is amazing -- and as the wind rolled off the bay, we were glad for the hand-rails, though sorry that some were only child height. There are some steep slopes on that wall. I would not want to be responsible for an active three to seven year old child on this wall, or the parent of a adventurous teenager in the town! There are signs that state, in Gaelic and English, that climbing on the stonework is dangerous! What an understatement! One could just imagine being a teenaged 13th century watchman climbing the un-guarded spiraling stairs into the battlements! The information center/ gift shop at the entry to the town was wonderful as was its proprietor.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

After a visit to the quay we decided to walk along the town walls and were so glad we did. There are quite a lot of steps and the walls are high, but handrails have been added so if you're sensible it's quite safe. The views are wonderful, especially of the town and you get a real sense of how the walls protected the original town. You can't walk all the way round on the walls, but they are mostly intact and it was the best 'town wall walk' we have done so far. We actually enjoyed it more than the visit to the castle.

“Town Wall Walk”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

The wall walk gives you a completely different view of Conwy. It is so interesting to look across the town to the castle, and down on some of the quaint cottages. A must!

“Wonderfully quaint!”
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.
