Where is it?
Situated in historical North Wales, Conwy is a World Heritage Site and a wonderful historic town. A true medieval gem, the town is dominated by a splendid medieval 13th Century castle built by Edward I and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls - fortified with 21 towers and three gateways, the walls form an almost unbroken shield around the old town http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue91Ra4ic9o
There's plenty to enjoy in Conwy with a picturesque fishing harbour, the 16th century Aberconwy House, the 'Smallest House in Great Britain', as well as the town's independent shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants.
