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.

  • You can’t miss this castle, it’s large and imposing on the edge of the water. There is a lot to see and good information boards around the castle telling you of the history of the different rooms...

  • Beautiful Castle. From the outside it really is very impressive. The views from the towers are amazing. I felt an audio guide could have been a real asset as there isn’t that much information. I A really well preserved castle, considering the castle is over 700 years old. Beautiful old castle and ruins that gives you a good insight into that time period in history. Good views of Conwy, town centre and river. Big gift shop and a good place to find some nice souvenirs. It’s very good value and really worth a visit.
  • My husband and I went in December , so off prime tourist season. It was absolutely spectacular!! Highly recommended you visit this place if you can. The castle is breathtaking and in very good condition , and the town is so lovely as well. So much to see here and enjoy .
