Conwy Castle (North Wales)

The second castle visited on the tour of North Wales was Conwy Castle. Again this was commissioned by Edward I and is a large and dominating castle on the landscape. From what I could see when walking around the town the castle walls encompass a large section of the town and indeed the official Conwy website shows an aerial shot of the town showing how far the walls extend to.

There was no need for the walls-within-walls layout of Beaumaris as Conwy is built upon a rocky hill with sheer drops which discourage climbing. Here’s a few pictures that really don’t do the castle justice. Definitely worth a visit!
