Conwy is a walled market town which sits by the sea on the north coast of Wales. It is a mainstay of the traditional spoken word of the ancient Welsh language. It is a popular tourist destination due to its fortified walls and castle, built in the 1200s, which preside over the town with a silent magnificence. The town quay is still a bustling place to spend a few hours, and boasts the 'smallest house in Great Britain' measuring in a diminutive 3.05mx1.8m.
Conwy is a busy town, with shops to delight all bargain hunters. The Victorian facades house boutique and independent shops to high street names. In addition, establishments such as the Trefriw Wooden Mills in the Conwy Valley sells handcrafted and local merchandise including tapestries, while down the road the Potters Gallery unites the work of local artists under one roof. For all you foodies out there, artisan bakers, butchers and grocers come together at any one of the local farmers markets held on a regular basis through the region.
