Evocative medieval splendour in picturesque surroundings Oct 11, 2013
Conwy Castle might not be quite as intact or imposing as Caernarfon, but its distinctive, almost symmetrical, structure (rectangular with eight majestic towers) have earned it UNESCO world heritage status. Its dramatic location on a coastal ridge and fine views of the surrounding countryside arguably make it the most attractive North Wales castle to visit.

Whilst much of the castle interior is indeed somewhat dilapidated, there re still plenty of fun opportunities to go exploring its nooks and crannies. If you make your way up the spiral staircases en route to the top of the towers you will be duly rewarded with magnificent views of the coast, nearby Llandudno and Snowdonia National Park.

The town of Conwy itself is perhaps not much to write home about, but the castle alone makes Conwy a must see place for anyone visiting North Wales.

Edwardian Fortress May 08, 2011
The castle walls go all around the town of Conwy and a good way to start your tour of the castle is by the entrance to the walls next to the harbour. Take a walk around the walls (approx 1 mile) until you come to the castle, which will cost £4.80 and worth every penny! While on the walls you can admire the views of North Wales and some parts of Snowdonia. There are 8 towers within the castle which you can climb up and take in the impressive views. There is information on each area of the castle and also guided tours are available. It is the first thing you see when arriving at Conwy and I can guarantee it will take your breath away.

Best of the English Castles in Wales Sep 26, 2010
Conwy Castle is a great atrraction for older children and adults. Admission was £4.60 per adult and £4.10 per child. From the top of Conwy castle it gives fine views of Snowdonia and Conwy bay itself.

Children will love the winding stairs and little rooms of each other, you could easily spend 2 hours here.

Conwy is the classis walled town, its circuit of walls , over three quarters of a mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers. It is one of the finest in the world.

When your next in Conwy make conwy Castle on your must see list.
