Visit Llandudno and Outlying Areas: Deganwy

Deganwy is a village on the mouth of the river Conwy in Wales.  It is located about two miles from the ancient town of Conwy and the popular holiday resort of Llandudno. It is also close to the Snowdonia National Park. Deganwy offers wonderful views over the sea and across to Anglesey. Ideal place for those who enjoys water sports, sailing and yachting. Deganwy is a fashionable residential village with many interesting antique and curio shops. It is also become entwined with the resort of Llandudno thanks to its famous golf course lying between the two places.

Deganwy has some of the finest views of Snowdonia and Conwy Castle. A few stones on the summit of the Vardre are all that remains of the once famed Deganwy Castle, bitterly fought over by the English and the Welsh.  The original castle was destroyed by Prince Llewelyn the Great in 1263.

The first castle was built by the Norman baron Robert of Rhuddlan in 1070. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, roofing slates were transported by rail from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Deganwy quay, north of the present station, and transferred to sailing ship to be sent to many countries afterwards.

There is a sandy beach and a number of small shops clustering under a Victorian style canopy. Especially worth visiting if you enjoy being on the water, boating and yachting.
