Unesco - Conwy Castle
There isn’t a better place in Britain to stand on the battlements of a castle. Conwy offers unrivalled views overlooking the estuary and having a landscape backdrop of the Snowdonia Hills. We think its one of the most magnificent medieval fortresses to be found anywhere in Europe and Conwy takes its place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its history going back to 13th century century. *Entrance fee applies if you want to visit the interior of the castle.
The Smallest House in Great Britain
Unbelivable, this house was featured in the Guiness Book of records for measuring a mere 6 feet wide and 12 feet wide. The former Fishermans cottage was about to be knocked down, when the owners discovered their unique dimensions and the derlict cottage turned into one of the unique tourist attractions in Great Britain
Unesco Medieval Town walls of Conwy
Said to be the best preserved town walls in Europe and stretching almost uninterrupted around Conwy’s medieval heart, they run for three quarters of a mile and feature 21 towers and three original gateways along their length. If you’ve got a head for heights, you can take a walk along the top of the wall as it loops around Conwy’s cramped medieval streets.
Bodnant Gardens
Rated as one of the best gardens to visit in Great Britain, Bodnant Gardens spreads out across 80 acres of hillside and includes one the finest rose gardens in Wales, set amongst five formal Italianate terraces. Bodnant’s most famous feature is the Laburnum arch, which is the longest in the UK and usually flowers between May and June. The gardens feature informal shrub borders stocked with plants from around the world. The Dell, is a gorge garden, areas of woodland garden with a number of notable trees and a waterfall. Entrance fee of £14 applies to enter the gardens
Lunch at a 15th century former courthouse beside the river
Discover a very traditional and scenic Welsh town that nearly became the capital of Wales with its 400 year old stone bridge and enjoy a visit to a former 15th century medieval court house nestled beside the river. It makes for an ideal refreshment or lunch stop. Don’t miss out on the best scones in Britain with their famous blended tea.
The Smallest Cathedral in Great Britain
A ‘Hidden Gem’! The site was founded in the year 560 and the present building was begun in the thirteenth century. The Cathedral is the home to one of the original copies of the Welsh Bible and as such provides a vital link with Welsh culture and literature.
St Winifrids Well
One of the 7 Wonders of Wales! A historic hidden gem, the well is reputedly the oldest continually visited pilgrim site in Britain. The healing waters are said to cause miraculous cures and have attracted visits from royalty since medieval times. Entrance fee of £2 per person.
