Book Conwy Town Walls Holidays

Holiday Travel Guide
Conwy which includes a small town or village, building ruins and heritage elements

Stroll along the top of these medieval ramparts that surround the small town and enjoy the views of historic structures, the river and the hilly green countryside.

The Conwy Town Walls are extraordinarily well preserved, providing a window into the village’s medieval appearance. Enveloping this quaint Welsh town are more than 0.75 miles (1.2 kilometers) of ramparts, featuring 21 towers and three portals. Pass through one of the gates that once controlled the comings and goings of Conwy and imagine the town as it was in ancient days.

Learn about the long history behind these walls, which have stood here since the late 1200s. They were built by King Edward I as part of the castle’s fortifications and are composed of mostly limestone and sand. Appreciate the sturdiness of the walls, which are 5.5 feet (1.7 meters) thick and 29 feet (9 meters) tall.

Start your walk along the top of the walls from near the Conwy Quay. Admire the vista of River Conwy, as you climb the rising rampart. You can almost complete a loop of the whole town along this stone pathway, although some parts of the wall are closed or missing.

Admire the turrets and flags of the 13th-century Conwy Castle, the crowning jewel of Conwy. Notice the majesty of the Upper Gate and the Mill Gate. As you make your way around the town’s circumference, look for the Smallest House in Great Britain, the Conwy Guildhall and the Plas Mawr, among the highlights.

Visit the walls for free. The gates are open to the public at all times.

The Conwy Town Walls form a triangle around the town, joining Conwy Castle in the southeastern corner. Arrive by train at the Conwy railway station or take a bus to a stop within the walls. You can also drive your car and leave it in the Morfa Bach Car Park. See nearby sights, such as the Conwy Suspension Bridge, the River Conwy and the Arch Commemorating Conwy Tunnel Opening.
