Castle
“Walk the castle walls to have a breathtaking view of Conwy and its beautiful quay! Conwy Castle is a fortification in Conwy, located in North Wales. It was built by Edward I, during his conquest of Wales, between 1283 and 1289. Constructed as part of a wider project to create the walled town of Conwy, the combined defences cost around £15,000, a huge sum for the period. Over the next few centuries, the castle played an important part in several wars. It withstood the siege of Madog ap Llywelyn in the winter of 1294–95, acted as a temporary haven for Richard II in 1399 and was held for several months by forces loyal to Owain Glyndŵr in 1401. Address: Rose Hill Street, Conwy, Wales.”

“Menai Bridge - LL59 5EY - 01248 716714 With sister restaurants in both Cricceth and Llandudno, these guys are taking North Wales by storm! Their unique Anglesey venue overlooks the Straits – and all three have gorgeous seaside themed décor. Their ethos is to celebrate the local produce, character & natural beauty of the area – and they do so to perfection! Specialising in homemade pizzas - as well as seafood and locally sourced meat – this place has fabulous sea-views, sells its own products (including sauces, luxury hampers, clothing & Welsh slate ‘boards’ etc) - and has lots of ‘foodie’ events going on throughout the year – including bread, baking & pizza making workshops, wine, gin & whisky nights – as well as food & film evenings – so check their website for details! Open from lunch until late every day of the week – but out of season it’s safer to ring ahead! Booking is advisable during weekends and busy periods. ”

“Trearddur Bay - LL65 2UP - 01407 860008 Serves drinks, lunch & supper - with wonderful sea views over the bay (both inside & out); the best in Trearddur! What’s more, it boasts a speciality gin bar! We’d recommend booking in advance, especially during busy periods! Located smack-bang next door to Trearddur’s RNLI Station, you might even see a rescue/practice launch taking place. Dolphins & seals are known to come into the bay, which is also famous for its Sailing Club and (summertime) regattas. With its glamorous décor, gorgeous seaside vistas and locally inspired menu - this is a place you’d be mad to miss out on! There’s a small amount of free parking outside, with more close-by in Trearddur’s smaller P&D parking area - as well as the main one. Usually open daily from 12pm throughout the year. Last food orders at 9pm. Dogs welcome outside - where there's another bar when the weather's nice!”

“Rhoscolyn - LL65 2NJ - 01407 740317 Open for coffee, lunch, nibbles, supper & drinks - from 12pm daily - with food-orders until 9pm, and normal pub hours usually applying otherwise. Gorgeous sea views, stylish, with an open fire in winter – you can’t really go wrong with the popular White Eagle! Dogs are allowed inside in their ‘snug’ area - and outside on the decking. It’s family friendly, has a beer-garden - and there are wonderful walking opportunities in the area too! Rhoscolyn’s main beach is just down the lane – so it’s perfect for some ‘après sea’. Lots of their meals include local produce – e.g. fresh seafood & welsh lamb/beef. They also host events throughout the year – so keep an eye on their website/Facebook pages! During school holidays, at weekends and on special occasions, if you want to eat there we’d recommend booking in advance – the same goes for larger groups! They’re used to muddy/sandy boots/paws - but it’s also a lovely place to go for a special evening-out. ”
