An Introduction to Conwy, north Wales
Conwy is very different to any other Welsh coastal town. A fishing community complete with a castle and its surviving medieval architecture of surrounding defensive walls, it really stands out. There are no amusement arcades filled with flashing lights or noisy attractions sounding like car alarms. This castle town doesn't experience hoards of revellers descending on the town during the summer months and there isn't a donkey in sight. The A55 tunnel under the bay, also helps relieve a lot of the old congestion problems and heavy traffic through the town.
Famous mainly for the Conwy medieval castle, 'The Walled Town' is full of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants along with a good number of pubs, art galleries, museums and a butterfly sanctuary. The three main town centre streets are always clean and the walk from the castle through the town is at times picturesque. If you look properly, its full of surprises. Most of the walls from the castle's outer perimeter still stand and give the town a very unique feel as traffic squeezes through the tight archways.
A Conwy UK Vacation will not fill a whole day but it should definitely not be passed over. Take a look around the castle, check out the "Knights Gone By" sword shop, browse the antique shops and make sure you don't miss the smallest house in Great Britain either.
