Conwy, Snowdonia, North Wales

A medieval coastal town and World Heritage site, Conwy's main attraction is undoubtedly its thirteenth-century castle and walls, built in the reign of Edward I.

Conwy is steeped in history with plenty of things to do and see. The Conwy Suspension Bridge, designed by Thomas Telford in 1826, has towers that match the nearby castle’s turrets. Plas Mawr is the finest Elizabethan townhouse of its period in Britain. Aberconwy House is Conwy’s only surviving 14th Century merchant house and one of the first buildings to be built inside its walls. And don't miss The Smallest House in Great Britain on Conwy Quay.

There's an array of independent shops, coffee shops and restaurants to visit. Conwy Marina and Quay is also a great place to sit and enjoy a drink or some ice cream in the sun. And if it’s a local pint you’re after, the Albion Ale House is a particularly good pub to visit.

Conwy is home to numerous popular events. Highlights include the annual Gwledd Conwy Feast held every October and Conwy Winterfest in early December
