Compared to Beaumaris Castle and Caernarfon Castle, Conwy Castle is the most complete and well preserved, although smallest, Welsh castle remaining in the UK. Surrounded by mountains and sea, with tall guard towers and thick defence walls; I can imagine the British King, Edward I, standing there haughty, overseeing his country and commanding his army.
Inside the city the ancient houses can be found everywhere, but just across the river there are modern cottages built along the hills with only one bridge connecting the two eras.
Long white rocky beaches lay against deep blue,
An elegant seashore between rocky green mountains.
Travellers sit idle on the beach,
While seagulls fly through the crowd.
The horizon lined with white wind turbines,
With mountain trains trundling back and forth.
Llandudno Harbour is a real natural beauty beneath the verdant hills of the Great Orme. It attracts numerous visitors, and the whole harbour, as well as the Victorian high street, is full of life. Llandudno is by far the most popular bay in the UK.
Portmeirion is a masterpiece of the British architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Today people called it “Italian Village”. It is a true expression of Italian colour and impression through a British man’s eyes.
