If you can’t resist a historical day out, Conwy is an ideal location and you won’t want to miss out on Aberconwy House. Known as a hidden gem on the High Street, Aberconwy House is the oldest building in Conwy.

This fourteenth century merchant’s house is the only house of its kind in the area to have survived through the walled town’s turbulent history spanning almost six centuries. Inside the house you’ll find furnished rooms each containing audio visual descriptions to show what day-to-day life was like throughout different periods in the house’s history. There are also guided tours available.

Historical tours aren’t the only thing on offer at Aberconwy. There is also live music in the house as well as a children’s trail and lace demonstrations. There are also seasonal events throughout the year such as Easter and Halloween activities.

Located on Conwy High Street, the shop at Aberconwy House is a great place to pick up a gift or token of your visit and you’ll find it full of ornaments, books and other souvenirs.

Aberconwy House is part of the National Trust, see their website for more information.

Conwy Walls Conwy Town Walls

The town walls of Conwy are a major tourist attraction for the town, and with good reason: they are regarded as one of the most impressive and most intact walled circuits in all of Europe. Dating back to the late 13th century, they are as old as the town itself, and constructed by Edward I to pair with the equally impressive Conwy Castle, they form a foreboding defensive installation.

Conwy Castle is easily the most spectacular of all the castles in North Wales (and cost the most to build, too!). The castle was built for Edward I by Master James of St George, and is one of the most impressive surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.

The town of Conwy is a popular tourist destination in North Wales, primarily for one major reason: it is home to the rather impressive stone structure that is Conwy Castle, as well as the town walls that accompany it.
