Due to the local lockdown affecting Conwy County at present, we have compiled a list of National Trust properties and locations which can be visited by locals to the area. These wonderful attractions can of course be visited and enjoyed by visitors to the area when it is deemed safe to do so.
This beautiful medieval merchant’s house in Conwy is the only surviving example of the era in the walled town. Aberconwy House has survived for over six centuries – with furnished rooms and an audio-visual presentation to show what daily life was like from different periods in the house’s history.
*At present, Aberconwy House is closed to the public. The National Trust is working to reopen their sites to the public in the safest way possible.
Conwy Suspension Bridge & Toll House
The Conwy Suspension Bridge used to be the gateway into Conwy, walk along the famous bridge and discover how a husband and wife team kept Thomas Telford’s bridge open every day of the year – no matter the weather conditions. In the 1890s, toll keepers David and Maria Williams kept the suspension bridge running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
*At present, Conwy Suspension Bridge & Toll House are closed to the public. The National Trust is working to reopen their sites to the public in the safest way possible.
This beautiful garden is a jewel in the crown of the National Trust in Wales. Found nestling in the Snowdonia foothills of North Wales, this incredible garden was forged by the stout Victorian vision of one extraordinary man and his descendants. Bodnant is a garden of firsts – home to the earliest and grandest laburnum arch built in 1880, to Britain’s earliest magnolias which were introduced from China in the late 1800s.
Bodnant Gardens is a garden for all seasons, there is still plenty to see in the Autumn and Winter. The garden wonderfully tells a tale of more than two centuries of world horticulture, and yet it is a garden that is still evolving. 40 formerly private acres were opened to the public in 2012, and the team of gardeners are constantly renovating and working on the beds and borders.
*At present, only local residents to Conwy can visit Bodnant Garden. Pre-booking tickets is also required for all visitors, including National Trust members.
