Conway


Conwy is located in the North of Wales, at the mouth of the Conwy (Conway) River. It is a small county on the Irish sea. Conwy itself is a picturesque tourist town with several notable old structures. A high wall dating from the 13th century, encloses the old town and a church and castle from the same era also remain. It is here too that The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art can be found, it occupies the Elizabethan mansion Plas Mawr. With its famous historic castle, superb scenery and warm welcome, Conwy offers such a rich history to explore.

For the visitor, there's all the enchantment of the magic and mystery of the past woven into the majestic scenery, which stretches, from the coastline right through the rural heart of Snowdonia. The compelling mountain ranges, tranquil lakes and wild moor land provide the ultimate picturesque backdrop stretching back hundreds of years to an incredible past. Most evident at the unique Conwy Castle.

Conwy castle is a gritty, dark stoned fortress that evokes a truly authentic medieval atmosphere. The first time that visitors catch sight of the castle, commanding a rock above the Conwy Estuary and demanding as much attention as the dramatic Snowdonia skyline behind it, they know they are in the presence of a historic site. It was constructed by the English monarch Edward I between 1283 and 1289 as one of the key fortresses in his 'iron ring' of castles to contain the Welsh. A distinguished historian wrote of Conwy, 'Taken as a whole, Conwy's incomparably the most magnificent of Edward I's Welsh fortresses'. The views from the battlements are breathtaking, looking out across mountains and sea and down to the roofless shell of the castle's 125ft Great Hall.
