Nearby Tourist Attractions
There are a lot of nearby tourist attractions like Conwy Castle, Conwy Quay and the smallest house in Britain. The smallest house in Britain is 3.05 metres by 1.8 metres.
The man who lived in the house was 6ft 3 inch and was a fisherman named Robert Jones. The rooms were too small for him to stand up and he was forced out to move when the council declared the house unfit for human habitation. The house is still owned by his descendants. In June 2006, there was a 50% loss of tourists to the house because of nearby road works. There is just about enough room floor one stove, a water tap, a bedside cabinet and a bed.
There is also the ruins of Deganwy castle and there two small hills left behind to show it's location. This castle would have been over 1000 years old but has been demolished. The castle was rebuilt in stone for King Henry III of England, but was abandoned and finally destroyed by Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, Prince of Wales in 1263. Conwy Castle was later constructed just across the estuary.
Conwy Suspension Bridge, was one of the first road suspension bridges in the world. Located in the medieval town of Conwy in Conwy county borough, North Wales, it is now only passable on foot. The bridge is now in the care of the National Trust. It originally carried the A55 road.
Built by Thomas Telford, the bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the River Conwy next to Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site. The bridge was completed in 1826 and replaced the ferry at the same point. Telford matched the bridge's supporting towers with the castle's turrets. It is in the same style as one of Telford's other bridges, the Menai Suspension Bridge crossing the Menai Strait. The Conwy bridge runs alongside the wrought iron tubular railway bridge built by Robert Stephenson. Until Stephenson's bridge was built, Telford's bridge was the only crossing of the river, and therefore the only way to get to the ferry that leaves for Ireland.
Built into the rock on which Conwy Castle stands, it is very close to the castle and very small (only about 2½ metres across). Part of the castle had to be demolished during construction in order for the suspension cables to be anchored into the rock.
The new bridge is not the main route across the River Conwy — the crossing of the River Conwy has always been a problem and today the A55 road goes under the river by tunnel — but is the major way across for local traffic.
