Perfect for a nice day trip if your staying a while in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield or Birmingham.

Conwy's setting is beautiful - it overlooks the estuary towards Deganwy, has the mountains of the Snowdonia region starting behind it, features a large and impressive castle and is surrounded by walls (which you can walk around).
The town has also come a long way in terms of shops, restaurants and lunch spots and you can now find a pleasing combination of traditional pubs, the obligatory fish and chips shops and cafes serving organic food there.

It was actually pretty darn cool to be able to walk around a castle that had intact walls and you could walk around on the various levels. We did this in late December when it was quite cold, but I would love to go back and do this again in the spring when it would be a bit warmer and the drive along the coast much more magnificent. Sadly, we only spent 1 day in Wales so we didn't get to see much other than this castle and the drive along the coast to get to it.

When it came time to go on May holiday from my studies at NUIG in Galway, Ireland, I decided to spend the week in the quaint, bucolic harbor village of Conwy. Having spent the last few months in the UK already, I was expecting the same slate skies, brisk weather, warming ales, and the occasional downpour. What I received was a merry community where there was barely a cloud in the sky, sunny days, fine Italian cuisine, and the most charming inhabitants I could have asked for my company. I stayed at a B&B in which I still keep up correspondence with the proprietors (the second night I was there, their son came home from time spent in NYC and we all had a lovely family dinner), and from said HQ I took a tour of as many of the surrounding castles of Edward I as I could, beginning with Conwy Castle. I purchased a ticket for a tram service that rode a circuit of his citadels, and after every daily sojourn back into medieval times I returned in the evening to Conwy where, for the small size of the town, I could have my pick of various worldly cuisines. As far as shopping went, the usual eclectic boutiques were to be found, as well as a cute sweet shop, and even an alternative clothing store beneath the main souvenir hub. For my jogging purposes there were beautiful paths along the river (just minutes from my door), and since I'm a celiac with gluten-intolerance, everyone from the kind owners of the B&B to the local merchants were more than happy to accommodate me in my dietary restrictions. Do yourself a favor and visit this ideal Welsh retreat!
