Built in the late 13th century and reputed to be haunted by a past resident, this picturesque castle was built for King Edward I and is a perfect example of the "concentric castle" design.

The visit to the castle is very interesting. Besides being a building full of history, it has a beautiful view of the city and its surroundings.

Large, semi restored castle built by Edward I in the thirteenth century. Not a wow but worth a visit, along with his other fortifications in the area.

I had the fortunate of visiting on a sunny afternoon, and enjoyed this castle a lot. It's mostly outdoors, quite large, and does talk about some of the history of the castle (wished for more information, but I guess that's what the internet is for).

The Conwy Castle dominates the town and offers an interesting self-guided tour that gives the visitor a glimpse into what life would have been like within its walls.

I'm guessing it wouldn't be suitable for a pram but would it be suitable to take a baby in a baby carrier?

A baby in a carrier should be OK. Some of the stairs/passageways can be a bit of a squeeze so some care is needed. Also by baby carrier I suspect you mean one fixed in-front of the body rather than "as a backpack". If... More
