Conwy Castle, where you can walk along some of the best-preserved medieval town walls in Europe and admire the views of the town and water.
Our first view of Conwy Castle from across the water. We entered the grounds by the bowling greens.Wooden sculpture guarding the inner castle.Looking up at ruined ceiling.We were allowed to climb up several of the crenellated towers of the castle. Al had some trouble with the low entryways.
Partway up we looked down on this wire sculpture of a king and his crown A white pigeon flying up to meet a friend on a ledge. At the top we were able to see the three different bridges, a car bridge, a pedestrian bridge and a railway bridge, that all led to the Castle. Yellow flowers growing out of a ledge .From the ramparts we could look over the courtyard and village beyond.We were able to make it to the other side of the castle and look back at the water.
Further fun to be had was a walk along the Conwy Town Walls that enclosed a large portion of the village.The harbour from the wall walkway.I love decorative chimney pots; they always look like designer chess pieces to me.
The Welsh flag with its red dragon. We circled around the village to get another view of the castle.Of course that wasn’t enough for us – we also had to go down to the beach area beside the castle.
From here we had a great view of the castle and one of the bridges leading to it. Near the castle was this painted statue of a knight in armour on a pillar.
