Plas Mawr stands as a symbol of a prosperous, buoyant age. The Elizabethan era. The finest town house of its period in Britain.
Its owner Robert Wynn, an influential merchant of great repute, was particularly fond of grandeur and colour. He also liked entertaining lavishly. Behold his finest hour, a grand house built between 1576 and 1585 in the heart of medieval Conwy’s narrow cobbled streets. A house which more than matched his grandiose ambitions.
Particularly exquisite is the ornamental plasterwork in the hall, now repainted in vivid original colours. There’s not an inch that doesn’t impress, from plasterwork ceilings to friezes and skilful carpentry. Look out for the initials ‘RW’ on various crests and coats of arms, lest you forget the master of the mansion and payer of all bills.
Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
Although admission to this event is free, it is a ticketed event. Tickets available on the website from the beginning of September.
