About the local area

Conwy itself is a tourists’ dream. Its picturesque harbour overlooks the River Conwy estuary- the perfect spot for an evening stroll- why not sit awhile on the harbour wall and watch the sun set over the Irish Sea? However, two things set this beautiful town apart. First, is its awe-inspiring castle that looms large over the surrounding area; regarded by many as one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in Europe, this majestic structure built by the English King Edward I to consolidate his grip over the fiercely independent Welsh Princes, it has spectacular views over the sun-kissed estuary and the distant ridges of Snowdonia. Second, are the almost complete circuit of mighty, stone walls ringing the town. They can be walked in sections and in doing so bridge the gap between past and present in a simple yet powerful manner. Conwy also boasts Plas Mawr or ‘Great Mansion’, arguably the best preserved Elizabethan townhouse in Great Britain and a ‘must see’ for any visitor and Aberconwy House, a 14th century merchant’s house with a turbulent past. To the west lies Anglesey, the spiritual and emotional heartland of Wales with its stunning, windswept clifftops and invigorating walks. To the south lies the Snowdonia National Park and its truly, stunning landscapes that compare with anywhere else in the country in beauty and natural grandeur. And to the east, lies the well-established holiday town of Llandudno with its superb range of tourist amenities. No visit to North Wales is complete without a trip to this friendly town and a walk along its spectacular 2,300 feet long pier an absolute must.
