The actual town on Conwy is an attractive place to visit. Set on the coastline it is one of the best medieval preserved towns in Wales and also in the whole of the UK. It has quaint little cobbled streets, winding roads, historic buildings and ancient walls that can date their origins back centuries. Conwy Castle is a World Heritage Site and is a key part in the history of Wales. Visitors have stunning views over the Conwy Estuary and it is a surprisingly intact castle for its age and radiates history.
Like Conwy, Llandudno is another seaside resort town found on the north coast of Wales within the county. It offers a wide variety of different activities for all the family and it really has an old seaside town feel about it. There are several walking trails in the surrounding area with local wildlife and you can even hire a guide to provide an educational aspect and learn more about the countryside. Water sports are popular here given the nature of the Conwy Bay and visitors can enjoy sailing, windsurfing and power boating. The town played an important role in the Second World War and it was used by the US army as a resting point. There are tours that travel around Llandudno providing in depth details of how the seaside resort changed from a quaint holiday location to a strategic military point.
Conwy has never tried to be something that it isn’t and the area retains a healthy amount of traditionalism. Indeed, you feel that you are going back decades (and centuries in some places) when you start exploring the local area and there is a good mix of both peaceful natural walks and trails, along with more active and sprightly sports activities. To get away from the city, then Conwy offers a real slice of nature and provides authentic Welsh culture with some beautiful surroundings.
