Over Easter we went away for a very brief break - just one night - to the North Wales coast near Conwy.
In the evening, we wandered round the town and found the illuminated castle rather ghostly looking.
By daylight, it's rather more solid - and perhaps even more impressive.
Approach from the right side and Conwy looks like it's still a fortified town - with a little imagination time feels like it's stood still.
You can even pretend to enter by the draw-bridge - although this one wasn't constructed till the early 19th century
You can walk all round town on the old walls
On the other, out to the river, quayside and a rather more modern harbour
Inside the walls,the streets still follow the Medieval pattern though full of tourists rather than invaders these days.
