About Conwy

Conwy with its magnificent awe inspiring castle used to be a wonderful landmark for me on the way to holiday cottages in Snowdonia in the 1940s and 50's. Setting off early from Cheshire we used to often catch the gateman fast asleep in the toll booth in the cottage on the old bridge and he would sleepily wave through the early comers. Now the A55 swoops under the river Conwy and misses the pleasure of the old bridge. It was, however, also a bottleneck and I've sat in some lengthy traffic jams waiting our turn to cross the bridge. Keeping the through traffic flowing has made the town of Conwy pleasant for the holidaymakers to stroll around sightseeing.

You only have to look at Conwy to see why it is one of the most popular holiday destinations in North Wales. It sits, with its castle and its almost complete city walls, facing Deganwy across the Conwy, with the magnificent backdrop of Snowdonia to complete the perfect picture.

The narrow suspension bridge, which I remember with such affection, was build by Thomas Telford and completed in 1826. It replaced the ferry. To be sure it was in keeping with the castle Telford design small round towers at either end to match the castle.The bridge is now pedestrianised. The tubular steel railway bridge was built by Robert Stephenson.

The grim grey, but at the same time awe inspiring, castle was built by Edward the first as a key fortress in his iron ring of castles to contain the conquered Welsh. It was built on a huge rock and has eight huge round towers. A family ticket to the castle, for two adults and up to three children, costs £13.30. The view from the battlements is worth the price, allowing the visitor to look down on the almost complete walls, which make Conwy a classic walled city, and to contemplate the backdrop of mountains and sea. The castle and everything enclosed in the city walls are classed as a World Heritage Site.

In the town there's an aquarium and boat trips both up and down the Conwy estuary. The town also boasts the oldest surviving complete house in Wales and the smallest house in Great Britain.

Aberconwy, a fourteenth century Merchant house, is thought to be the oldest surviving house in Wales and perhaps in Great Britain. The smallest house, which can be found on the quay, measures just 3.05 metres by 1.8 metres. It was built around 1500 and lived in until 1900 when the owner, a 6 foot 3 inch fisherman, Robert Jones, was forced to move out for health reasons. He couldn't stand upright in any of the rooms. It still belongs to his descendants and during the holiday season, visitors are welcomed in to the tiny, red painted house, by a lady in traditional Welsh dress.

Another architectural gem is Plas Mawr, the finest surviving house from the Elizabethan era in Wales.

It was close to Conwy that Hugh Lorys Hughes developed and built the famous floating Mulberry Harbour used in Operation Overlord in the second World War. Conwy is surrounded by many hotels and spas and notable day trips from the town include the stately Victorian resort of Llandudno and the Great Orme, Elegant Beaumaris on the Island of Anglesey. A train runs through the beautiful Conwy Valley up to the former industrial two of Blaenau Festiniog where visitors can take a train ride deep into the mountains to visit the former slate quarry, now a popular tourist attraction.

With a population of 14,000 Conwy has a good range of shops, cafes and restaurants.
