Conwy Castle

Built for Edward I, Conwy Castle is amongst the finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain. Incredibly well preserved, its grand towers and curtain walls cast an imposing shadow over the town. If the outside impresses - and it will - wait until you go inside. The intact interior means it's very easy to imagine how this gritty fortress functioned when the royal entourage of the 13th century were in town. While there, be sure to take in the quaint town of Conwy, which time has chosen to pass by. After a bite at the local chippy, take a stroll along the town walls, explore the nearby mountain walks or uncover hidden gems along the city's streets.

Electric Mountain

On the shore of the glacial lake Llyn Padarn, Electric Mountain marks the starting point for tours into fascinating Dinorwig Hydro Electric Power Station. Deep in Elidir mountain is one of Europe's largest man-made caverns, home to a pumped storage generator which converts the power of water into electricity. Sound a bit odd? Perhaps so, but it's well worth the visit. It’s like a film-set for a James Bond movie, vast chambers and tunnels so big you can drive a bus through them. Which is a good job, since you’ll be on it.
