Conwy Castle, Conwy

(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.

  • A great example of the castles built in the 13th. Century by the English king to try to control the Welsh people. Great views from the towers and in amazing condition. Well worth a visit if in Conwy.  more »
  • A must visit if you ever go to Conwy. A beautiful Castle to look around. £7.95 to get in but worth every penny if you take in all the info on offer.  more »
  • I recommend that you walk along the arm of sea where you will find a PUB he's going out with your Paint of Guinness to drink outside sitting on a stool enjoying that view.. not to be missed.. It's not just the castle is the cidadedezinha walk by it between the various Pubs meet the creatures ... There are and if the train don't miss breakfast in restaurantinho train station (the station before entering the city, the only delicious I ate between there, England and Scotland, then walk to the medieval city

  • They have close, reasonable parking. They offer a child's quest that kept our kids engaged and taught me about the history of the castle. I was a little nervous about the gaps in some rails because of my very clumsy 5yr old, but he was just fine! There are some beautiful and amazing scenes from the castle. It borders the most beautiful Snowdonia!
  • Beautiful historic place with panoramic views across the town, river & mountains. Young children require close supervision in the castle due to risk of fall from heights. Would definitely visit again.
  • I come from a country without many ancient castles or ruins. We spent the whole day here staring at the ocean, walking the ruins, and the walls. Gorgeous castle ruins! The town is also really picturesque.
  • Why does the English guide book cost £2 more than all the other languages?! Yes it was bigger, but why don't you have the option to buy a smaller version like the other languages. We still enjoyed our visit very much, fab views and good weather made it a worth while visit.
  • An excellent place to visit. Amazing stone structures. Excellent view from the towers. Enjoyed walking on the city walls
