Conwy is much more than a cute little town. On this walking tour, we’ll retrace its medieval history back to its roots as a Norman settlement. I’ll tell you stories about the castle, the town’s fishing industry, and its modern bridges as we pass by locally-owned shops where artisanal butchers, bakers and chocolatiers sell their wares.
You’ll journey down cobbled alleys and back streets while learning about the mighty Conwy Castle and town walls which were given World Heritage status in 1986 for being one of the most complete circuits in Britain. We'll tour the outskirts of Plas Mawr, justifiably known as the finest Elizabethan town house in Wales, and Aberconwy House which dates back to 1400. You'll also have a chance to photograph yourself against the Guinness Book of Records’ Smallest House in Britain, and to walk across the Conwy Suspension Bridge, a masterpiece of Victorian engineering built by celebrated engineer Thomas Telford.
Come along – it'll be the best half hour you can spend in Conwy!
