Directions to the Conwy Pirate Weekend
Conwy is a gritty, dark stoned fortress which has the rare ability to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere. The first time that visitors catch sight of the castle, commanding a rock above the Conwy Estuary and demanding as much attention as the dramatic Snowdonia skyline behind it, they know they are in the presence of a historic site which still casts a powerful spell.
If you have never been then this is how you find us!

Traveling By Train
Conwy Town has its own train station indicated on the map above. If approaching from Chester you may find the train doesn’t go to Conwy station.
The nearest station it will go to is Llandudno junction also indicated on the above map.
Traveling By Car
Leave the A55 at junction 18, take the A546 exit to Conwy/A547 Deganwy. Go straight on at the first round about. Then take the first exit on the following round about for Conway Road/A547. Proceed over the bridge into Conwy Town. Conwy is a medieval town enclosed by a great wall, one of the best examples of a walled town left in Europe so parking is a bit restricted. There are a couple of small short stay car parks within the walls but you are better off heading for the big long stay car park (it’s cheaper!) just outside the walls.
Most people drive into conwy across the bridge in front of the castle. When you come to the little roundabout directly in front of the castle turn left (alongside the castle) and follow the road round until you come to the entrance to the car park on you r right, I know it seems a long way from the town but it isn’t; there’s a neat shortcut under the railway and directly into the town through the ancient Mill Gate.
There is also parking just outside the Town Walls on the opposite side of the town at the Town Ditch carpark; adjacent to the town walls and at Bodlondeb (the local Council Offices which are closed at the weekend) a little further from the town but within easy walking distance of events on the quay.
