Really captures the times with the audio tour and the way the rooms are set out down to the detail of playing cards and the pipes in the main hall, and the food being prepared in the Kitchen. Fascinating for the children especially the display on sports (football was frowned upon!) and toilet habits (including wee specimens and what they... More

Interesting audio tour and friendly staff. Very informative. Well worth a visit. Excellent character actors brought the house alive over the bank holiday weekend. Allow a good hour or more for your visit

Visited Plas Mawr after visiting Conwy Castle (and noticed that they have a joint ticket at a special price). Have visited Conwy many times and have walked passed Plas Mawr but never ventured in. What a mistake! Really enjoyed walking around the house and gardens listening to the story being told via the audio equipment. Would recommend a visit to... More

We came across this as part of a deal where you get to see Conwy castle as well. We recommend this as it's a good value for money. It is an interesting house full of Tudor history. I recommend getting the listening device as it gives you all the history about the building and the people who lived there. As... More

Very good National Trust property. We enjoyed our visit having found the property by chance. The podcast of the property which you can hear in every room really gives you an insight into the property

Plas Mawr is reckoned to be the finest Elizabethan town house in Britain. The building was extensively refurbished about 20 years ago to bring the inside and outside back to how they would have looked when the building was in it's prime (cAD1586). The internal decor is magnificent and there are informative displays in some of the rooms. The views... More

Visited today. Really enjoyed it and the audio machines they give really make it better as they tell you all about each room. Impressed with the kitchen and pantry.

I'd heard about this place on a TV report some time ago & after reading positive reviews on Trip Adv. made it a 'must-do' during my visit to Conwy. I was certainly not disappointed, it exceeded my expectation - it's fabulous! Well preserved and managed by CADW - enthusiastic house guides and a really good audio hand-set tour to carry... More
