Conwy - A Truly Historic Experience
If you found yourself transported back in time to Conwy in 1280 you wouldn’t find much here. Just a settlement with an abbey. Skip forward a few years to 1287 and you’d barely recognise the place. The English king, Edward I, had invaded the region, and was determined that the local Welsh population would stay conquered. A huge white castle sprung up on the high rock overlooking the town. Its enormous towers could be seen for miles, as could the great wall that enclosed the town. The monks were moved up river to Maenan, and the locals only allowed back within the walls to sell their wares to their conquerors!
But what was bad for medieval Welsh people is great for the modern visitor. The UNESCO World Heritage Site castle and walls (the most intact in Europe) are fantastic sights. The views from the tops of the turrets, out across the surrounding mountains, river and estuary are pretty impressive as well. Many a happy hour can be spent exploring the well-preserved battlements, or doing a circuit of the town along the walls.
Back on the ground and the narrow streets and historic buildings give a real sense of the place. It’s fascinating to wander amongst 12th century churches, Elizabethan homes and medieval merchants houses, before winding up at the quayside with its rich maritime history.
