4.6/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Conwy Castle has everything you imagine a medieval castle would: massive defensive walls with round towers, fortified gateways, and a perch on a rocky outcropping next to a body of water. UNESCO recognizes the castle as one of Europe's best examples of military architecture from the late 13th and early 14th centuries. Take a self-guided tour and visit the great hall, private chambers, and chapel, then head to the top of one of the towers for views of the surrounding Welsh countryside, the River Conwy, and the Irish Sea. Interpretive signs throughout the site present its history. Disabled visitors receive free admission, but wheelchair access is confined to the visitor center. Plan your visit to Conwy Castle and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Conwy trip builder.

  • Beautiful castle in a lovely town.Well worth a visit or two!Plenty of eating places and a lovely harbour.The wall around the town is worth walking around but not with small children. 
  • Fantastically preserved castle. Cost just under £8 per adult to enter however you can walk the town walls for free. The castle has summer really interesting history and the views from the top are amazing.
  • This was a great castle to include on your "castle tour of Wales" The walls of Conwy are also amazing to walk along. The wall walk provides a very interesting view of Conwy. The Conwy Castle was also easy to walk through and is very well preserved.
  • Be sure to get a guided tour of the castle as there is soo much to see, and it's easy to miss things if you don't know what to look for. But if you can, it is worth making the climb up to the top of the towers to get a great view of the town.
  • Nice place to visit, can do a little crabbing on the front if the tide is in or off the jetty if not. Free to walk around the town walls which has some great views, just be careful with the littluns. The front harbour itself has the smallest house in GB to visit, icereams..usual sea side stuff. The fisherman's chippy up the little alley is good, not my favourite type of takeaway but best chips I've had.
  • We were totally amazed at this old Castle. We happily spent three hours here exploring. It is so big! There is also good and interesting information available throughout. It is in such a beautiful spot and the views are incredible.
