Castle and bridges 2

The medieval town of Conwy was built between 1283 and 1289 by the English monarch Edward I. It is renowned for its castle, which was to be one of a series of fortifications, which he hoped would contain the Welsh. The town walls, which can be walked along are almost complete, and stretch for three quarters of a mile.

The architecture within the walls of the town is a mixture of ancient buildings, some dating back to the thirteenth and fourteenth century and some of a more recent construction. Conwy is a beautiful and bustling holiday town and it is no wonder that it was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1986, along with the other nearby castles of Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Harlech.

There are so many places of interest to visit within the town, some of which I have detailed within this section, that to fully explore them all would take a few days. Add to this the many beautiful places to visit within a short distance of the town, it is little wonder that thousands of tourists flock to this small holiday town and are often overwhelmed by the number of places to visit which cater to a wide range of tastes.
