Conwy

Travel Guide
Conwy featuring street scenes

Waleshas many market towns, but you’ll be stuck to find any that compare to Conwy. The immense fortress built here by Edward I of England back in the 13th Century is probably the best-preserved medieval structure in all of Wales. Located on the North Wales coast, this medieval town is literally one of a kind.

The ancient imposing battlements of Conwy Castle and its town walls are a particularly treat for history lovers. Nevertheless, backdropped by the extraordinary Snowdonia National Park and the crashing sea beyond, a visit to Conwywill make a memorable stay for anybody who visits the town.

Conwy Castle and Town Walls Teetering on a craggy outcrop of solid rock, Conwy Castle is a magnificent feat of medieval engineering. It consists of two gigantic entranceways and eight towers, as well as nearly a mile’s worth of imposing black wall that encircles the town. While today the castle is a tourist attraction offering unbeatable views across the coast, it’s not difficult to imagine Conwyas it must have appeared in its early history.

The Smallest House in Britain From one of Britain’s largest ancient structures to one of its smallest – a visit to Conwy would not be complete without peeking inside Britain’s smallest house. And a peek is all you’ll need. This tiny dwelling is just six feet wide and ten feet tall, so it won’t take long to look around!Although no longer inhabited, it’s an entertaining visit nevertheless.

Shopping in Conwy Conwy’s medieval streets are gems in their own right, and have barely changed over the centuries. However, the town’s central High Street is now home to a great mix of curiosity shops. You’ll find original art, handmade toys, quirky keepsakes, a Christmas Shop (where it’s Christmas 365 days a year) and even a knight’s shop where you can pick up a sword and coat of armour.

Festivals in Conwy Conwymay be small but when it comes to festivals it certainly packs a punch. In addition to the Conwy Seed Fair every March, and the Conwy Honey Fair every September, it hosts the Gwledd Conwy Feast each October. Coinciding with the start of mussel season, this fantastic food festival is one of the largest in Wales, attracting visitors from all over the country and beyond. Indulge yourself in Welsh culinary delights, a tankard of local beer and live music in this idyllic ancient setting.

Golf in Conwy Come along and practice your swing on the Conwy Morfa Golf Course. Founded in 1869 on the estuary of the Conwy River, the course is purported to be the oldest in Wales. Small yet popular course, you’ll find it particularly challenging thanks to the prevailing winds that often sweep in off the coast.
