Conwy is a small town in Wales, surrounded by an medieval city wall, and guarded by an enormous castle, which is mostly intact. Conwy’s castle is part of a Unesco World Heritage Site that includes other Welsh castles from the Edwardian age.
The way to get to Conwy is by train, but you need to get out at another city, named Llandudno. From there, Conwy is perhaps 1.5 miles further away, at the other side of a bridge across the river.
On the tallest towers on a clear day, you can look towards Wales and see the Snowdonian mountains, and see the port area and small private boats at Llandudno. Wales is hilly at the coasts, and the view is stunning.
Conwy town itself is very small, and after seeing the castle, it is nice to have a short stroll around the town. It has beautiful intact city walls.
