There’s a reason why Conwy is a must-visit destination for global and British tourists alike...
With its medieval castle walls, cobbled high street, beautiful harbour, centuries-old buildings, and of course, the world-famous castle itself, you will struggle to find a more charming town to visit on holiday or enjoy on a more regular basis through holiday home ownership.
Our five-star Berthlwyd Park is located just one mile from the town centre. Conwy Valley is far-reaching and encompasses many towns and villages, as well beautiful scenery.
A picture-perfect historic town
Conwy is unique – the world heritage site castle acts as the focal point of the town and brings a sense of character that cannot be replicated anywhere else. The medieval charm is bolstered by the original castle walls that still stand and can be walked along to offer fantastic views of the town centre – it’s our favourite way to explore and see the town.
The main streets are cobbled adding even more medieval personality and are lined with well-known high street brands and delightful local businesses and boutique shops.
More than just a castle
We’ve mentioned the lovely boutique feel to Conwy’s high street but when it comes to food and drink, Conwy is one of the best locations in North Wales.
There is a fantastic selection of award-winning traditional pubs within the castle walls, each with their own story and character, plus an everchanging selection of guest ales.
There is also a vibrant food scene in Conwy. Many of the pubs offer top-class food and there are a number of restaurants that have been a mainstay in the town for years, popular amongst both locals and tourists alike.
Every October, Conwy Feast takes place which continues to grow in popularity since it first began back in 2003. It showcases local food and drink producers, as well as attracts those from further afield and has become a real date in the diary and visited and enjoyed by thousands over the weekend. There’s food stalls, beer tents, artists and craftsman, plus a music festival-style stage with lots of live music.
Outside the castle walls
Outside of the castle walls, there is also plenty of interesting and fun places to enjoy. There’s the championship Conwy golf course - widely revered as the best in North Wales amongst golf aficionados.
There’s also Conwy marina – one of the biggest in the UK – where boat trips and water activities can be booked. The marina’s bar and restaurant ‘The Mulberry’ is also a brilliant spot, especially on sunny days. For fun family days on the beach Conwy Morfa is ideal – a long sandy stretch of beach that sits in the sun all day and offers one of the most popular sunset spots in the area.
