Read on for our list of Conwy’s top attractions, complete with Tan Rallt’s TR Tips to help make your day out as special as possible!
As you cross over the bridge into the town this is one site that you really cannot miss! Built in the 13th Century by Edward I, it was designed as an English stronghold against the unruly Welsh! The castle is magnificent from every angle, but the best views are from the battlements.

In addition to the castle, the town of Conwy is also protected by walls 15 foot high. Measuring 3/4 of a mile in total, they run around the outside of the town and offer spectacular views out onto the estuary and the surrounding mountains.
The harbour is the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll. It offers stunning views across the water to Dengawy, and is also a great place to grab some fish and chips – just beware the seagulls!
Not that bothered about castles? Or maybe you just prefer the Elizebethan age to the Medieval? Conwy still has you covered! Located in the centre of town Plas Mawr was built by local merchant Robert Wynn in the 16th Century to show off his wealth and status (and also host lavish parties!).

It may be small, but the bright red exterior will ensure that you don’t miss this attraction! Located on the quay this house measure 3m by 1.8m, cozy indeed! It has been inhabited since the 16th century, and was certainly a tight squeeze for its last occupant, local fisherman Robert Jones, who was 6 ft 3!
This gallery is Conwy’s hidden gem! Founded in 1881 it is the oldest academy of artists in Wales. there is also a gift shop selling items hand crafted by local artists – the perfect way to remember you holiday to North Wales! For information on the current exhibition, click here.
