Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  Wales  /  North Wales  /  Conwy County  /  Conwy  /  Plas Mawr
Visit a remarkably well preserved Elizabethan-era townhouse at Plas Mawr, a "great hall" built in the 16th century for Welsh merchant Robert Wynn. Surrounded by the medieval town of Conwy and its 13th-century walls, admire this architectural gem's high, white walls and crow-stepped gables. Inside, take an audio tour to learn about the restoration of the house and the life of the Tudor gentry and their servants. View the original plasterwork and wooden wall paneling in seven of the house’s rooms. The restored furniture recreates the atmosphere of a 16th-century townhouse.

Where to stay in Conwy

You'll find a good number of small, family-run bed and breakfasts in Conwy. Some particularly fine buildings house luxury hotels, and many of the pubs serve as inns, with just a handful of rooms located upstairs. Campgrounds and caravan parks lie just south of the town, easily reached by taxi from the town center, or a decent, hilly walk across the countryside.
