Weekend Explorer Conwy, Wales
The majestic medieval castle town of Conwy sits in northwestern Wales. With over 400 castles in Wales, legends abound, including one that the wizard Merlin- -of Camelot fame- - is thought to sleep on an island here. Welsh society was ancient way back when the Romans first came to Wales in 70 AD. Come along as we tour this scenic country from a base in historic Conwy, a town that sits within the protective walls of a majestic medieval castle, horseback ride a mountain that overlooks the scenic Irish Sea, hike in the Great Orme Country Park with wild goats and a bizarre looking type of seal, and visit a local woolen mill that takes wool from the sheep’s back all the way to tweed blazers and take a train ride to Snowdonia National Park.
