Conwy Vacation Packages
Walk Conwy’s cobbled streets between ancient walls enclosing the town and gaze up at the high towers of the castle. Enter the opulent homes of former town merchants and discover a house claimed to be Britain’s smallest.
Start your visit to Conwy at Conwy Castle, one of the "Iron Ring" fortresses the English King Edward I commissioned during his conquest of Wales. Explore the paths and open courtyard of the interior and climb to the battlements for fantastic views of the town and the sea. Join a guided tour to learn more about the castle’s history.
Climb up the Town Wall for more great views. The 4,300-foot-long (1,300-meter) wall was originally designed to keep the Welsh out of Conwy. Impressively, it is still mostly intact, making Conwy one of the most complete walled towns in the U.K.
Continue your tour of Conwy’s past by visiting one of the many historical buildings in town. Stop at Aberconwy House to see what a 14th-century merchantman’s house would have been like. The house has hosted several businesses over the years, but has since been restored to its original state.
Head to Plas Mawr to visit another merchantman’s house. Plas Mawr is known as one of Britain’s best surviving Elizabethan town houses. Look for examples of plaster ceilings and friezes from the period. Pick up an audio guide to learn more about the specific details.
Don't miss the Smallest House in Great Britain. Verified by the Guinness Book of World Records, this tiny house is only 72 by 122 inches (182 by 310 centimeters) See if you can fit inside as well as its last owner, a sailor who was over 6 feet (2 meters) tall.
Access Conwy by car, train or bus. The town is small enough that most of it can be explored on foot, but buses are available for visiting areas outside the downtown area. Find a range of hotels in and around town.
