How To Reach Conwy
Conwy also called Conway in the traditional language, is actually an enclosed community and market town in the Conwy County Borough, north coast of Wales. A world heritage site, Conwy’s old fashioned harbor, the avant-garde Telford Suspension Bridge, magnificent castles and walls from the 13th century, and its closeness to one of the most popular seaside resort towns and the mountains of Snowdonia, making Conwy one of the leading tourist destinations in the world. With a rich cultural history surrounding its constructs and traditions preserved within its four walls, Conwy may seem a little inaccessible, owing to its medieval vibes, however reaching here is just an hour’s drive from two of UK’s major airports, Manchester & Liverpool, and just as easy is to travel by train from all the other major cities in the UK to Conwy.
