Places to stay in Conwy

The walled market town of Conwy is perhaps best known for its magnificent castle and National Trust suspension bridge, but there is much more to see and do in this historic Welsh settlement. As well as its many ancient structures, Conwy is right on the doorstep of the northern tip of Snowdonia, and tourists often use the town as a picturesque base for visiting the national park.

With dozens of walking and cycling opportunities nearby in Snowdonia and Bodlondeb Wood, Conwy is a favourite with those who love the great outdoors as well as local history.

Offering spectacular views of Snowdonia National Park and just a convenient ten-minute walk from the town centre, YHA Conwy offers a comfortable base from which to explore the countryside and settlements of North Wales. Alternatively, the nearby farmhouse hostel at YHA Rowen provides top-quality accommodation in Snowdonia itself.


Five Free Things To Do In Conwy

Conwy Suspension Bridge
Built by the famous Scottish architect Thomas Telford, this bridge spans the River Conwy and is now only traversable on foot. It runs alongside Conwy Railway bridge, which was constructed by Robert Stephenson.

Smallest House in Great Britain
Measuring just ten feet by six feet and just over ten feet high, this former fisherman's house features in the Guinness Book of Records! You can view it from the outside for free, or pay a small fee for a peek inside.

The National Park spans more than 800 square miles, with enough valleys, lakes and mountains to keep even the most demanding hikers happy. Conwy Mountain, just west of the town, offers beautiful views of the bay.

Royal Cambrian Academy of Art
This gallery in the heart of Conwy hosts six exhibitions every year, and regularly puts on educational activities for children and adults interested in the world of art.

Conwy Mussel Museum
Learn all about the history of the musseling industry in Conwy at this museum on the quay, and see how fishermen still use the "raking" technique that's been in use for centuries.
