About Conwy

Conwy is a name that is almost unavoidable for visitors to Wales, with a river, castle, valley and county sharing its name. And for those that choose to make the old walled town of Conwy the base for their holiday, there is a wonderful blend of stunning scenery and impressively preserved medieval architecture just waiting to be discovered.

If history is your thing, then you’re in for a treat. The imposing Conwy Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is widely regarded as one of the most immaculate European military fortresses, and time has not diminished the statement of strength conveyed by the immense town walls. In direct contrast to the commanding castle, you’ll also find the UK’s smallest house in Conwy. The old dwelling of a local fisherman, the 10 foot by 6 foot building now proves very popular with tourists.

The town sits at the end of the Conwy Valley, a lush and diverse landscape with wooded gorges, heather moorlands, mountain pools and waterfalls to explore. Popular with wildlife as well as tourists, the RSPB reserve overlooking the wetlands makes a great day out for bird spotters and nature lovers. Alternatively, you can have a wild day out with the family at Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo.
