Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  Wales  /  North Wales  /  Conwy County  /  Conwy  /  Plas Mawr
Visit a remarkably well preserved Elizabethan-era townhouse at Plas Mawr, a "great hall" built in the 16th century for Welsh merchant Robert Wynn. Surrounded by the medieval town of Conwy and its 13th-century walls, admire this architectural gem's high, white walls and crow-stepped gables. Inside, take an audio tour to learn about the restoration of the house and the life of the Tudor gentry and their servants. View the original plasterwork and wooden wall paneling in seven of the house’s rooms. The restored furniture recreates the atmosphere of a 16th-century townhouse. To visit Plas Mawr and get the most from your holiday in Conwy, create itinerary details personal to you using our Conwy journey planning website.

  • Absolutely gorgeous. WOW! This large and wonderfully preserved Tudor house is a treat. Splendidly restored, it holds many surprises. I will be back. Definitely recommend... it's a hidden gem!
  • A cool well-preserved old house - the price was included with the Castle so I thought I would see it. The map was useful and the staff were friendly. Some staff were more interested in speaking to each other though.
  • Amazing, well preserved Elizabethan house in centre of Conwy. Great audio guide and beautiful house. Tranquility of the garden makes you think you are out in the country and not in town. Parking plentiful and a short walk away. Just beautiful.
  • This place was amazing, so much bigger than you think it is initially. The staff are very helpful and informative. We loved it!
  • Fascinating view into the lives of people who lived hundreds of years ago. The audio tour is great as well!
