Conwy, Northern Wales

The town of Conwy is on the north coast of the county of the same name in Wales. The picturesque town is a walled city protected by Conwy Castle. The castle is one of four built by Edward I in the 13th century to protect his recent conquest of the Welsh, this castle has walls also containing the small village originally occupied by the English. A beautiful castle that has suffered some damage over the years but is still intact enough to give the visitor a good idea of what was there before. A nominal entrance fee is charged though this is waived if you are a member of CADW (welsh historical society). The tours are offered by an independent group within the castle walls and is worth taking. Great views of the rest of the town and famous bridges leading to the town. There is also a good walk along about 1/3 of the city walls and it is FREE.
