Conwy is a straight-out-of-book-picturesque walled market town that sits on River Conwy. The town is located in the north coast of Wales right up the Snowdonia National Park. Conwy, is less than an hour’s drive from Chester, and a little over 1.5 hours drive from Liverpool. There’s plenty to keep you occupied when you are travelling in Conwy, considering the size of the town. There’s castle, town walls, walks around the river, sandy beaches, wildlife watching and many more. And if you happen to be travelling in Wales, and in particular around Snowdonia Region, you can easily do a weekend getaway to Conwy, and you will not be disappointed. We had been to Conwy earlier this year with the kids, and we all loved it. The weather wasn’t great, but the vibes of the town never disappointed us.
