      What a fabulous Medieval Castle to visit. Highly recommended. Lots of Towers to climb and ramparts to walk along. Beautiful views. Loads of hidden chambers. A well preserved Castle complimented by a wall surrounding the City

      Beautiful Castle. From the outside it really is very impressive. The views from the towers are amazing. I felt an audio guide could have been a real asset as there isn’t that much information. IA really well preserved castle, considering the castle is over 700 years old. Beautiful old castle and ruins that gives you a good insight into that time period in history. Good views of Conwy, town centre and river.Big gift shop and a good place to find some nice souvenirs. It’s very good value and really worth a visit.

      This castle is a spectacular sight in Conwy. Climbing to the top of the towers does involves navigating some steep and narrow stairs. Give the age of the castle this is to be expected. The views from the top are spectacularly beautiful. If height is your phobia then please don’t look down. This is a large site so depending on how much you are planning to see, you should budget for around 3.5 hours to see the best bits and snap of photos..Finding the castle was easy and parking was plentiful. However, we arrived at 10:30 and by 13:00 the car park was full. I paid around £4.50 for six hours parking!!Whilst you are here consider paying a visit to Britain smaller house!!For a small fee of only £1.50 you are getting the chance to walk through the doors of this miniature living space.

      £36 for a family ticket, when we went in at 10am there was a jester who did a juggling act, a story teller and a magician all really good and worth seeing. They made it all so much better than just seeing the ruins. The castle is good though and worth a visit. You can access the castles town walls for free and can pretty much walk completely round them.
