Owner description: Built in the late 13th century and reputed to be haunted by a past resident, this picturesque castle was built for King Edward I and is a perfect example of the "concentric castle" design.

Great castle, our kids loved it. It’s an ancient monument so not practical for anyone with mobility problems or pushchairs You can also walk around the town walls for free which is great.

We have an abundance of medieval castles and market towns in North Wales, Conwy is the best if both worlds.
The CADW easter Dragon hunt was great fun and made it an even more enjoyable way to show the kids around one of the finest castles in the world.

Visited on Easter Sunday. Absolutely fabulous castle. Very well maintained. I was very surprised that you could clime the towers too.

There is a dragon quest app for your mobile phone which made it much more fun for the kids too (and grown ups with a young heart). Being Easter we were rewarded too with a full size Easter egg for completing the dragon quest.

I can strongly recommend a trip here if you’re in the area.

The castle and walled city are deservedly of World Heritage status, as so much of the building has survived. This castle is like a castle should be! Visitors can wander around rooms that are easier to imagine being occupied in Edward 1's time than are many other incomplete buildings. The chapel still retains stained glass windows, the towers are accessible, as are the walls. The view at the end castle of the suspension bridge (Telford's for the old road) the railway close by, sympathetically designed, and the whole landscape of the estuary with boats, is simply delightful. Walk the town walls to complete the medieval experience.

This place is beautiful. Everything is outside so put that in mind when you find something to wear. A little bit scary somethimes for those who are a little bit scared of hights. They could have put up a bit taller fences but besides that it is a great experience.
