Create an itinerary including Conwy Castle
Conwy Castle has everything you imagine a medieval castle would: massive defensive walls with round towers, fortified gateways, and a perch on a rocky outcropping next to a body of water. UNESCO recognizes the castle as one of Europe's best examples of military architecture from the late 13th and early 14th centuries. Take a self-guided tour and visit the great hall, private chambers, and chapel, then head to the top of one of the towers for views of the surrounding Welsh countryside, the River Conwy, and the Irish Sea. Interpretive signs throughout the site present its history. Disabled visitors receive free admission, but wheelchair access is confined to the visitor center. Use our Conwy visit planner to arrange your visit to Conwy Castle and other attractions in Conwy.

  • Superb castle with Spectacular views from the wall-walk. Lovely sea-side town but one way system and narrow streets mean that using the Castle long stay car park is a good solution, it's only a short walk through to the town centre and sea front. Parking near the front is difficult and the ever present sea-gulls often leave a gift!! Also, be very wary of eating on the sea-front as the gulls are quite daring and will easily snatch food from your hand.
  • Lovely Castle, it set so that the town is interlocking with it, so you go from castle arches to shops. You can walk around the castle walls. Dogs are allowed, however be mindful that some parts have slotted wooden floors and there paws can find them close to falling through the gaps. I actually had to carry my 26kg husky down a flight of stairs, but pretty much all free and it is stunning. See my photos.
