Plas Mawr, the ‘Great Hall’, is one of the finest surviving Elizabethan town houses to be found anywhere in Great Britain and one of Conwy’s top attractions. It stands on the High Street, in the heart of Conwy, and was built between 1576 and 1585 for the influential Welsh merchant, Robert Wynn.
Aberconwy House is a 14th century merchant’s house (and the oldest house in Conwy) which has survived the turbulent history of the town. It is now owned by The National Trust who have furnished rooms and prepared an audio-visual presentation showing how people lived in the house from the different periods in its history.
