Things to do at Conwy Castle review

Conwy Castle in Conwy, North Wales is one of the most famous and most picturesque of all the numerous castles in Wales. It’s setting next to the bay of the town of Conwy leaves you with location location location envy.

Conwy castle can only truly be appreciated from a distance so make sure you fit a walk around the town in so you can see the castle in all its glory.

The castle is just a short walk from Conwy’s train station. There are also a few car parks in the town. We didn’t spend more than an hour there but we enjoyed our visit and it gave us time to walk the castle walls and explore Conwy after.

Conwy is a mostly ruined castle which still has it’s outer walls. There are inner rooms you can explore (with no roof) and you can also climb the stairs and walk along the battlements. The view over to the harbour is lovely and we spent a good deal of time just taking it all in.

The walls around Conwy itself are free to visit and not part of the castle visit. They stretch almost uninterupted for three quarters of a mile. The one way route starts by the castle but after a short walk the wall stops and you have to then find where you can rejoin (which wasn’t easy). There’s 21 towers along the length and lots of steps.
