Visit a remarkably well preserved Elizabethan-era townhouse at Plas Mawr, a "great hall" built in the 16th century for Welsh merchant Robert Wynn. Surrounded by the medieval town of Conwy and its 13th-century walls, admire this architectural gem's high, white walls and crow-stepped gables. Inside, take an audio tour to learn about the restoration of the house and the life of the Tudor gentry and their servants. View the original plasterwork and wooden wall paneling in seven of the house’s rooms. The restored furniture recreates the atmosphere of a 16th-century townhouse.

  • Absolutely gorgeous. WOW! This large and wonderfully preserved Tudor house is a treat. Splendidly restored, it holds many surprises. I will be back. Definitely recommend... it's a hidden gem!
  • A cool well-preserved old house - the price was included with the Castle so I thought I would see it. The map was useful and the staff were friendly. Some staff were more interested in speaking to each other though.
