Conwy Castle is an incredible castle that still dominates the town 700 years later.
The walk around the battlements gives you incredible views of the Snowdonia mountains, the harbour and town below – highly recommended. The town is still protected by an unbroken 1.3km town wall, unique in so many ways.
Add to the beauty the knowledge that King Edward I, and his architect Master James of St George, built both Conway Castle and the town walls in just four years between 1283 and 1287.
Conwy takes its place alongside Edward’s other great castles at Beaumaris, Harlech and Caernarfon as a World Heritage Site.
