  • Excellent views of the town but should not be attempted in high winds or rain. Lots of uphill stretches but plentiful supply of handrails.

  • Spent an excellent hour wandering along the walls, they enclose 3/4 of the towns with great views of the castle and surrounding countryside.

  • The walls ring the historic town of Conwy and one may walk along the top almost all the way around the town. The walk is interesting and provides great views of the town, especially the highest...

  • Definitely worth the time to walk the entire wall. Changing beautiful views from each side keeps your interest. Amazing views of the castle. Watch for creative stone work, like rock stairs up to towers.
  • The walk offers excellent views of the city of Conwy and is a fantastic way to see the surrounding scenery. Even better, it’s free! We were able to access the main section of the wall from near the train platform, but your best bet would be down by the Smallest House.
  • I took the path to climb up the walls from near the smallest house if Great Britian. The walk was nice with views of city, beach, castle etc. There were stairs in between to go down in case you loved a place from far, and make your mind to go down and be there near it.
  • Walking the wall is a fantastic place to start when visiting Conwy, providing you with views of the area and some local history. The path is narrow but suitable for all ages and we brought a pram along the wall, although did have to carry at some points.
  • Lovely walk along the town walls and great views of the town, castle and surrounding areas. The first two entrances are separate to the main part and closes fairly early but the majority appears to be open all the time which allows for you to go later when it's less busy and get sunset views. The best entrance to get the most walk is the railway entrance which is on the opposite side of the station to the town square. Its not difficult of a walk but would not recommend to people with movement difficulty as there are steep steps to get on, throughout and to get off.
