Conwy Castle, Wales

To make the most of our weekend in Wales, we decided to swing by Conwy Castle on the way home. It was a short drive from Betws-y-Coed, just outside Snowdonia National Park, and wouldn’t add too much time to our road trip home to London. We love castles, so we…

Snowdonia National Park, Wales
