Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Wales / North Wales / Conwy County / Conwy / Plas Mawr
Visit a remarkably well preserved Elizabethan-era townhouse at Plas Mawr, a "great hall" built in the 16th century for Welsh merchant Robert Wynn. Surrounded by the medieval town of Conwy and its 13th-century walls, admire this architectural gem's high, white walls and crow-stepped gables. Inside, take an audio tour to learn about the restoration of the house and the life of the Tudor gentry and their servants. View the original plasterwork and wooden wall paneling in seven of the house’s rooms. The restored furniture recreates the atmosphere of a 16th-century townhouse.

This is a little gem in Conwy often missed. Its an excellent Elizabethan house. You are actually allowed to take photos, you can have audio to go round or a readable version whichever you prefer. The staff are great, very friendly, don't pass this by its too good to miss and very reasonable prices.
A really interesting historic building in Conwy, which gives a great sense of how people lived in the years since it was built. The audio tour is fabulous. A mobile phone sized gadget can be pointed at a trigger point in each room, and then voice actors tell you about life as it related to that room. There are also really helpful and informative staff on hand to tell you about the things you are looking at and how people lived in those rooms. A brilliantly done experience.
Absolutely amazing place. So good to finally visit. They give you a really useful audio guide. So much fascinating information. Stunning building. I liked the extra information display too. All the stuff about medicine.
Super interesting and historic place! The staff were so friendly and jovial. Definitely take the audio guide. It is told by actors playing the people who lived there. Very creative and fun. Very well done.
We visited this house a couple of weeks ago, and it was fantastic. I was a little skeptical at first (my wife talked me into it) as I have been to plenty of historic homes and houses ("stately homes"), and they often leave me feeling underwhelmed. Plas Mawr was completely different. The entire house still feels lived in, as if the original occupants are still around somewhere, and it has a fascinating history that is not based in royalty or aristocracy... well, not too much anyway. It is a real gem!
