Visit Conwy Castle

Conwy Castle does not have a car park, however there is a charging council-run car parking with accessible spaces immediately adjacent to the castle entrance: Google maps view

There are several medium and large paid car parks throughout the town and on the outskirts. The town can also be accessed by train, with the station a few hundred meters away from the caste entrance.

The journey from the car park into the visitor centre is flat and evenly paved. The visitor centre has wide, automatic doors.

Conwy Castle’s visitor centre is spacious and features low admissions desks and automatic doors.

The journey from the visitor centre to the castle is via a steep path of approximately 50 meters and includes several steps at various locations

Conwy Castle has a suite of toilets on the lower level, accessed via a flight of stairs. There is also an accessible toilet on the ground floor and baby changing facilities. Baby changing faculties are available on lower level.

The grounds are laid to grass with flat, cobbled pathways leading to different areas within the castle. Access to the great hall area and east barbican are via short flights of stairs.

Conwy Castle has eight tall towers and a further four turrets, and, as a result, lots of stairs. The castle can be enjoyed at ground level, however much of the site is accessed via steep, narrow staircases, some of which are uneven, including the wall walks and some internal rooms including the chapel.
