FUN-travel: Deganwy/Conwy, Wales

June 3, 2017 by  

  • Today’s Treat…

…train to Blaenau Ffestiniog…slate capital of the world…socked in with pea soup fog…

…back on for Betws-y-Coed…home to Britain’s first artist colony…

…secluded alpine area near Mt. Snowdon…more “oh so cute & quaint” …

…a river runs through it…and next to the golf course.

How’s that for a major water hazard?

  • Back to Deganway…

…40 min stroll to Conwy Castle…

  • Castle & town walls planned as a single entity

…begun in 1283…done in 1287…astonishingly fast…

  • Pop into the Albion Pub for a Snowdon Craft Lager…

…then onto Watson’s Bistro for dinner…

…YUMMY!

FUN-fact – Conwy Castle cost 15,000 pounds (45 million in today’s money) and is one of finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
