After recently visiting Conwy on a very rainy day last week with my Girlfriend, my views of this town in North Wales were initially dampened. However, as the rain gave way to some welcoming sunshine my eyes began to open as to the appeal of this small yet interesting town. The main focus of our day was Conwy Castle which was around £9.00 for the two of us. With some very interesting facts as to how the castle was built and captured by a Welsh insurgent, the tour of the castle takes around an hour to an hour and a half and is a must when visiting Conwy. Following on from this we then decided to walk through the town itself which has a very touristic feel with quaint ... Read the complete review

As you probably know by now we moved to North Wales last year to live in Llandudno. It's a beautiful area with plenty of places within easy reach for days out and Conwy is one of them, so I'd better tell you all about it! Conwy is west of Llandudno, sheltered by the Great Ormes Head and looking out towards Anglesey and Puffin Island. The most striking thing about Conwy is the castle, built by Edward I as the third of his Welsh fortresses. It is built on a strategic site on the Conwy estuary giving it river, sea and land defences. The castle consists of an inner and outer ward surrounded by eight drum towers, which are all linked to one ... Read the complete review

I've always had a fascination with walled towns and Conwy has been a particular favourite of mine since childhood. I've come to appreciate it even more in recent years since the construction of a bypass eased the worst of the traffic congestion that had blighted the town for decades, and I'd recommend the town to anybody who appreciates a place that is determined to live its life at its own pace. If you're driving into the town and are expecting to breeze into a multi-storey facility where you can leave the car, forget it - parking in Conwy is very much a lottery and can be nigh on impossible during the peak weeks. There is ... Read the complete review

Conwy is a victim of it's own popularity, it's a small town with very narrow roads going through it which can make traffic a problem. If they re did the roads it would take away the very essence of what so many people come to see in the first place. Once you brave the traffic and the limited parking and step out of your car, you find yourself in a beautiful old town with a moderately well preserved castle as it's centre-piece. Located close to tourist orientated Llandudno, it is perfect to split a day out between the two towns. The Castle is a must see but it has now changed from National Trust to Welsh Heritage so National Trust Members ... Read the complete review
