Conwy Castle

Introduction

Conwy Castle, Conwy, Snowdonia, North Wales

Built for King Edward I between 1283-87, Master James of St George's design at Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and great bow-shaped hall, was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands.

Pay-and-display parking nearby, toilets, guidebook available, site exhibition, giftshop, tourist information centre on-site.
