Conwy Town and Castle are one of the finest examples of a medieval walled town to be
found in Europe. Conwy town really began to take shape when King Edward I built
the castle between 1283 and 1289 as one of his main fortresses in North Wales.
The castle walls which encircle the town and stretch for more than a mile are protected by twenty two towers.
Conwy Castle and walls are a World Heritage Site
Within the walls stand many beautiful old houses which have been painstakingly restored and are now possibly some of the finest examples of medieval houses in the world. Plas Mawr was the fifteenth century home of a wealthy merchant and stands proud in the centre of Conwy Town. Aberconwy house is another fine example of a 13th century medieval home and is also the oldest house remaining in Conwy .
The oldest building within the walls of Conwy is St. Mary's Church which was built on the site of the original Cistercian Monastery which was there approximately 100 years before the castle was built. St Mary's Church is situated directly behind our B&B and some rooms have excellent views of it.
