Plas Mawr, Conwy

(5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Plas Mawr into our Conwy family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Conwy.

  • A very interesting afternoon spent learning about this well preserved Elizabethan house. The staff were very well informed and friendly. Exceeded our expectations.
  • Mostly indoors so ideal for a rainy day. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in historical reconstruction.
  • What an amazing insight into life during the Elizabethan era. The set up makes you feel like the house is still lived in and the occupants have just popped out, returning at any moment. The audioguide provides a detailed commentary of every room in the house, the family who lived there and life all those years ago. If you've visited Conwy Castle, present your ticket and get a discount on the entry fee.
  • A really fascinating lookback at Elizabethan Welsh life. Well preserved period detail with a good audio tour.
  • This was a great place to visit. Just make sure to do the audio tour - it is definitely worth listening to and adds a lot to simply walking around yourself.
