Conwy Castle, Conwy

4.6
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.

  • This Castle give you a feel as if it is still inhabited. Tall towers and big walls demonstrate the greatness of the royals that lived there. View of the town is breath taking from the top. This...  more »

  • A must see if visiting Conwy. About 700 yrs old if I remember correctly. A hike to the top but well worth it  more »

  • Magnificent castle ruins with a deep history. We did the self guided tour. The castle has many areas to explore, and several of the towers are open for visitors to climb all the way to the top. The site has great views of the surrounding lands and sea. Would also recommend checking out the castle walls, which surround the town of Conwy and are free to access. They provide the best views of Conwy Castle from the exterior.
  • Beautiful place to visit. The kids love crabbing here and you couldn't ask for a better backdrop than the fantastic Conwy castle. Ice cream here is the best we've had too! Walk around the castle walls, visit the castle itself, browse the variety of quaint/traditional shops, lots to do and see. We love it here!
  • Went for a day trip over the bank holiday with the wife and we both loved the active fishing harbour and quite little side streets. I would definitely recommend going here for a one day trip or a weekend stop over. The castle tour was very interesting and would also recommend it to anyone
  • Great place to explore and learn. Reasonably priced. Well kept and lovely little show for the kids. The views are stunning and worth the hard walk to the top. Defiantly a must visit!
  • The castle is fascinating, well maintained with plenty of information to read as you walk round. Staff are friendly and very well informed about the castle and the surrounding area. The views from the castle walls are nothing short of breath taking. The local town is small and bustling with activity. Some fabulous food on offer from the several pubs. On a nice day the castle will keep you occupied for a long morning and the town and a boat trip will fill the rest of the day. I can't wait to go back.
