Places to stay in Conwy

Wales itself is the perfect place for a holiday that the whole family will love, thanks to the blend of thrilling activities and enchanting countryside on offer, but why choose Conwy? Perhaps the charming quay, the astoundingly preserved castle and the bustling town centre will convince you.

Conwy is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby Snowdonia mountains or the dense woodland of Betws-y-Coed, or to take the kids for a day on one of Llandudno’s two gorgeous beaches. Yet Conwy itself has plenty to offer; enjoy the River Conwy by taking a boat tour or trying your hand at yachting, or stay on dry land and visit Britain’s finest surviving Elizabethan town house. Whatever time of year you visit, there’s a good chance one of Conwy’s many concerts, fairs, or festivals will be ready to keep the family entertained.

Five Free Things To Do In Conwy

Llandudno Promenade
This Victorian construction is the ideal place for a stroll to give your time away a real seaside holiday feel. No cars are allowed on here, so walkers are free to enjoy the band stand, the theatre and the stunning views uninterrupted.

Alice in Wonderland
Alice Liddel, the girl who inspired Lewis Carroll’s much loved classic Alice in Wonderland, used to holiday in Llandudno, and the town has commemorated this link by creating an ‘Alice Trail’ of statues showing the magical characters. Find The Mad Hatter on the promenade, the Queen of Hearts on Gloddaeth Avenue, Alice at the train station (which has easy links to Conwy), and the White Rabbit in North Western Gardens.

National Slate Museum Llanberis
Discover the story behind the slate industry in Wales as you’re treated to slate-splitting demonstrations, an introductory film, a tour of the quarrymen’s houses and a giant waterwheel.

Royal Cambrian Academy of Art (RCA)
If you’ve a budding artist in the family, or if you simply want the kids to have a day out with a difference, the collection of archive material housed at the RCA, some dating back to the academy’s foundation in 1881, is well worth a look.

Plas Tan y Bwlch Gardens
Stroll through the 13 acres of Victorian gardens that await you at Plas Tan y Bwlch, and enjoy the flora and fauna of the woodland, a sensory garden and an ornamental pond. Take a look inside the Victorian mansion that sits in these magnificent grounds – it’s now a study centre run by the Snowdonia National Park.
