Conwy is situated on the banks of the River Conwy in Conwy County, North Wales. The magnificent Edwardian Castle and town walls of Conwy are a World Heritage Site and after a visit to the town you will understand why they have been chosen for this award.
The castle itself is one of the most impressive examples of mediaeval military architecture and offers spectacular views of both the estuary and the mountains of Snowdonia. Visitors can also walk along the town walls between Uppergate Street and Berry Street. The circuit of walls, over three quarters of a mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers, is one of the finest in the World.

Bodnant Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK, spanning some 80 acres and is situated above the River Conwy on ground sloping towards the west and looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range. The garden has two parts. The upper garden around Bodnant Hall consists of the terraced gardens and informal lawns shaded by trees. The lower portion, known as the Dell is formed by the valley of the River Hiraethlyn and contains the Wild garden. An endeavour has been made at Bodnant Garden to grow a wide range of interesting and beautiful plants from all over the world, particularly China, North America, Europe and Japan that are suited to the Welsh climate and soil. As well as this, care has been taken to place the plants in such a way that they enhance each other and contribute to the general beauty of the garden throughout the seasons. The Garden will interest amateur and professional gardeners, artists, photographers and families alike. There are dramatic colours throughout the season, with notable collections of rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias and the spectacular laburnum archway.
