Visit the Conwy Castle
This medieval castle was built by Edward I in his conquest of Wales in the 12th century. It still stands in all its glory with its infamous 8 towers jutting out of the top. A sight of this magnificent castle sends you right back to the dark ages. It epitomises what you would imagine a castle to look like, only better. Battlement perches at the top of the towers, archers taking aim from their longbows, and gunships going off, all come to mind at the sight of Conwy Castle. Also, the work of architecture displayed by this behemoth of a building is just bewildering.
Take your family to the top and enjoy a full-size panorama of lush green mountains and the river entering the sea at Conwy bay. You can stroll along the 1-kilometre long wall as you marvel at its moss-covered form. Inside the castle, there are wards, dark caves, hideouts, pillar-bound passages, and large rooms with high ceilings. These deliver an Indiana Jones experience that you wouldn’t want to miss. There’s so much more, which you’ll have to see for yourself. Just make sure to bring your camera to capture all these wonderful moments.
