|Us in front of Conwy Castle|
The rest of the day we wandered around the town of Conwy. Many headed towards the tea room to warm up after the cold and damp of the castle. We split into different groups to check out the shops around the town, only to meet up once more. Our group seems to have an uncanny knack of locating one another in any size town. We were at Britain's smallest house, measuring 3.05 by 1.8 meters.

We hiked around the town wall (yes you can walk on the walls), up to the highest point in the area which offered quite amazing views.

Just a short bus ride from Conwy, is the resort town of Llandudno. This wonderfully scenic town has been constructed in a mid-Victorian style. It truly is the "Queen of the Welsh Resorts." There is a waterfront promenade as well as a pier stretching out into the bay. Next to the town is the Great Orme, a gorgeous mountain full of numerous attractions, including a 4,000 year old copper mine. We didn't make it there, but we could see it from the hostel. Conwy kept us busy, and some of us may have been too cheap to spring for bus fare. If we had another day we would have wondered in that direction. We had a great time exploring Conwy. Tomorrow we head towards Aberystwyth, taking a coach through Snowdonia.
