This charter fair dates back a truly impressive 700 years or so, originally founded by King Edward I. The prescribed date for the Seed Fair is the 26th March, set by the Royal Charter of Edward I, but as this is a Sunday in 2017 the fair will be on the 27th March.
Organised by the Conwy Beekeepers, the Seed Fair is a major event in the Conwy calendar, and has real local flavour. Both the High Street and Lancaster Square will be filled with stalls of all shapes and sizes, offering up a wide variety of products, such as local crafts, homemade produce, jars of delectable local honey and, of course, a range of plants and seeds, many of which can be difficult to get hold of.
Admission is free, but you’ll want to bring plenty of money with you – there are so many tempting things on offer here. Disabled access is good, although the High Street is paved with flagstones, so you may wish to take care. The Seed Fair runs from 9am through to 4pm.
The same group also orgamise the Honey Fair, this year on the 13th September 2017

Somewhere you've never been? What is Nearby?
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.
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 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.
Find somewhere to let in town. Towns offer the convenience of shops, restaurants and other ammenities whilst you're never far from the countryside.
Enjoy everything Conwy has to offer by staying in a cottage in and around the town or Conwy Marina. Attractions include Conwy Castle, the town walls, Plas Mawr Elizabethan House, The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, pleasure cruises and a wide range of shops and restaurants.
This large area of country side streches from the Conwy Valley towards Chester. Almost entirely countryside, many of the cottages have wonderful views across green fields, hills and woodland. Find something to suit you...
