Castle
“Its a good day out if the weather is ok. Conwy Castle (Welsh: Castell Conwy) 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. ”

Park
“Mountainous 823-square-mile National Park, including remote villages, lakes and of course Snowdon. if your feeling energetic you can walk to the top or if you dont fancy the walk you can take a train. It all depends which route you take but should take somewhere between 5-7 hours to reach the summit and walk back down (3 hours each way) (or just 1 hour if you take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the top!). Snowdon is about an hour drive from us ”
