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 http://www.conwy.com 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!
