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. ”
