Conwy Castle is a darkly evocative stone fortress oozing an authentic medieval atmosphere which will tease kids' imaginations, a historic site which still casts a powerful spell even today. The 8 huge round towers give the castle (a World Heritage Inscribed site) an intimidating presence undimmed by the passage of time and brilliantly back dropped by Snowdonia behind: fabulous territory for taking some family photos!
Stunning battlement views look across mountains and the sea and down to the castle's 125ft Great Hall and it is from these battlements that you and your family can best appreciate Conwy's other great glory: its circuit of walls, over 3 quarters of a mile long and guarded by a whopping 22 towers, acknowledged as one of the finest in the World!
There's loads of room outside for the kids to run about and let out the fizz and imagination they've build up exploring this gorgeous ruin. Also it's well worth noting that Conwy railway station is right next door to the castle, so you can leave the motor at home and have an even larger adventure with a little jaunt on the railway there and back. Add in a picnic in beautiful scenery and we're talking a heck of a day for munchkins: fun, educational and adventurous!
