Meet the team
Manager recommends: Conwy town wall - Walking along the wall towards the harbour, gives you an amazing perspective of the walled town. Even better - it's free! Or enjoy the amazing flavours of Parisella’s award winning ice cream, made right here in Conwy. Visit the factory shop in Lancaster Square or the kiosk at Conwy Quay and plump for signature sensations such as Amaretto and Black Cherry or Blue Banana. Albion Ale House on Uppergate Street is an absolute gem. Recalling a simpler time, the traditional 1920s public house offers no music, no television and no meals – just fantastic beer and bar snacks in a unique setting.
