  • The town walls of Conwy are amazing. 13th century construction, a World Heritage Site offering fabulous views of Conwy, the Castle and the estuary. Go - it's wonderful.

  • Well worth a walk round to see the town from a bird's eye. This just makes Conwy different and more special.

  • You can walk about three quarters of the way around the old walled town of Conwy (with a brief interuption) on the walls. It's definitely worth the walk. You can start either down by the water or over at the castle. Be sure to ascend to the top of the corner tower to get a great view of the town and castle.
  • All part of the Conwy experience, after visiting the castle, the knight shop and the harbour, continue with a walk around the town walls to get back to the car park. Lots of photo opportunities and a lovely distant view of the castle.
  • Take a walk around the town walls to take in the full magic of Conwy, leading from the castle right around to the harbour you will get to enjoy breathtaking views missed from street level. The walls are free and a great escape from the hussle and bussle of the pavements
  • Amazing city walls. They just seem to go on forever!
  • Fantastic view of the castle, city, and surrounding countryside!
