Travel Tips for Conwy
It's Wales, It Rains
Bring a waterproof coat so the drizzle doesn't soak you. The sun will probably come out but you don't want it to have to dry you off. A big zoom lens because some lambs don't let you get too close. This is as close as I got to this wee one, I'd crept as close as I could snapping pics all the way ;-)
Chester and Liverpool
Other places to visit whilst in the area are Chester which is 35 miles and Liverpool is also only 35 miles away. Both with so much to see.
The photograph is of me in Chester with the old roman walls behind.
Conwy Suspension Bridge
Conwy Suspension Bridge was one of the first suspension bridges built in the world. It was designed and built by Thomas Telford in 1826.
The bridge spans the River Conwy, and sits alongside the Conwy Castle. In fact, at first glance the bridge appears to be joined to the castle. Prior to the bridges completion, the only way to cross the river was by ferry.
These days the suspension bridge is pedestrian only, and there is a large steel bridge right next to it for the traffic. You can take a walk on the bridge and visit the restored tollhouse for a small cost.
This 14th-century merchant’s house is the only medieval merchant’s house to have survived the somewhat turbulent history of this fantastic walled town for over six centuries. It is said to have been built by the same craftsmen that constructed the Castle and is indeed built from the same staone.
Furnished rooms and an audio-visual presentation show daily life from different periods in its history.

The industrialist Henry Pochin laid out these gardens in the 1870s. Later, his daughter and son-in-law Lord Aberconway, together with their children, gradually enlarged the gardens. Today, they are among the most beautiful formal gardens in Wales. It's now a National Trust property.
